Urged along with a whip
It is easy to imagine that before there were cars on the roads, there was hardly any traffic. Taking a jaunt back to Elizabethan London dispels that myth. They used carts and coaches often pulled by up to six horses which were urged along with a whip. This meant that even if the driver was alert it would be difficult to stop the coach quickly. Bridget Serton, aged twelve, was killed by a cart near Aldgate. She got caught between the portcullis and the gate and was crushed to death.
It was pure chaos as there was no Highway Code. This meant that there were no rules about giving priority to oncoming traffic through narrow lanes or giving way to traffic coming from the right. There was no predetermined side of the road to drive on either. Basically, a cart driver would see a stretch of road before him, decide which direction he wanted to go in and then just cut across everything and everybody to get there. Imagine lots of people driving like that then throw in a flock of geese, which had walked up from Norfolk, into the equation. When you’ve got that picture in your mind, add a flock of sheep, which had been driven up from Kent, getting mixed up in the muddle and you have an idea of what the roads were like.
