Paper Abstract

Let us confess at the very beginning of this article that Lord Rayleigh did not have very much to do with automotive safety. In fact, when he was born in 1842 the entire concept of self-powered vehicles was still considered to be science fiction, although the steam locomotive had just been invented and railroads were beginning to spread outwards from London. Towards the end of his life, the family acquired a touring car to take him to the railroad station for his many trips to London, but I do not believe Rayleigh himself ever learned to drive a car.
