Time Out says
In 1865, the UK parliament passed The Red Flag Act, a law insisting all motorised vehicles travelled at a maximum of 2mph in the city (think: London at rush hour) or 4mph in the countryside and warned pedestrians of their approach with a man walking in front of the car waving a red flag. Times have changed quite a bit since then - now a good rule of thumb is to get the hell out the way of moving traffic, not dawdle in front of it flapping a flag - and as we approach the era of driverless cars, the V&A has a major exhibition looking at how automobiles have drastically impacted on the modern world.
