One hundred years ago, few people owned a car in the UK. In country towns and villages, the local squire, the doctor, vet, and one or two other wealthy people, were the only ones to be seen driving around those country lanes.
If you could afford a car and pay five pounds for a licence at the village Post Office, you were fit to go. Unbelievably, a Highway Code was not introduced until 1931 and passing any test was unnecessary until 1935.
Unsurprisingly, when the poor peasants heard the sound of the squires car coming towards them, around some bend, they would fling themselves into the hedgerow.
The driver may have been utterly incompetent and possibly drunk on good liquor. Whilst the roads may not have been littered with pedestrian casualties, it was to become a problem over time.
As a newly qualified driver, it remains a lasting memory, the first time you are allowed out on your own.
Car design is continually focused on safety. Impact crumple zones on a car are designed to give any person knocked over, a better chance. And yet, it’s not too many years ago that all cars had heavy protruding, bone breaking chrome bumpers, and dangerous bonnet mascots.
Parking the car in a tight spot often meant reversing until you felt the bump of the parked car behind. Now we have all sorts of aids such as a parking camera along with all round audible sensors.
All the latest equipment can be found at the local car stereo installation centre.
Visiting these stores can make you feel like a starved small child allowed loose in an unmanned sweet shop. You may have started the visit to choose a new cup holder, but by the time you leave, it’s possible you’ll be carrying boxes of many other goodies.
Amongst these items may be a couple of video cameras for front view and reverse. Maybe a GPS tracking device that can be concealed somewhere in the car.
