Before Horns, Every Car Had a Flag Man
As if driving wasn't stressful enough, imagine a man ushering your car everywhere you went, blowing horns and waving red flags. In a time before the car horn, all automobiles in Britain were required to be escorted by a flag man. With motorists only allowed to travel as fast as the flag man in front of them, a quick milk run down the road wasn't very, well, quick. With many unhappy with the new legislation, Miller Rees Hutchison decided to take on the problem himself, eventually inventing the first electric car horn.
