I have recently learned that a law requiring taxi cab drivers in London to carry a bale of hay on the roof of the cab was only repealed as recently as 1976! Neither is it any longer necessary to carry a nosebag on the side of the vehicle, or a sack of oats.

It has long since been assumed that the laws requiring the cabby to carry "adequate foodstuffs for the horse", meant a tank full of diesel!
