The Automobile


Cars are а common sight on roads today, but that wasn't always true.

Back in the days before the car had been invented, the only personal means of transport were the horse and the bicycle.



The first cars got their power from steam and gas, and had а maximum speed of around nine miles an hour.



In Britain, there was а law stopping cars from going over two miles an hour in towns.



At the end of the nineteenth century, cars started to use petrol and became much faster than they had been.



Very few people at that time said that cars would change the world in the future.



That is exactly what has happened, though, and since then we have built close to eighteen million miles of roads on the Earth.



Perhaps the biggest sign of the success of the car is the fact that there are over 800 million of them in the world.
