Regency York had its share of traffic problems, some of them strikingly similar to those we experience today. Consider some of the basic traffic – coaches, waggons, horses, sedan chairs, pedestrians – and the ever-familiar problems of parking, congestion, narrow streets, road-rage incidents, and boy-racers. You’ll learn that then controversial solutions to the various problems, such as new river crossings, road-widening, and driving on the left, were slow to emerge…if, indeed, they ever did!
