The Rule of the Road–the simple requirement that traffic keep either to the left or the right–has a history long antedating the appearance of the automobile. . . . This book is a must for all those history buffs who just want to know how and why we are where we are today. Defense Transportation Journal

The rule of the road–the simple requirement that traffic keep either to the left or to the right–has a history long antedating the appearance of the automobile. This volume, the first book-length treatment of the subject, discusses the origins and history of the rule of the road and provides complete information on current practice throughout the world. A well-written account of a universal arrangement that has largely gone unnoticed by scholars, this book fills a gap in scholarship on the history of transportation.
