Cuckfield is evidently feeling, more and more, the altered condition of affairs. Motorists, who

are supposed to bring back prosperity to the road, do nothing of the kind on the road to Brighton; for those who live at Brighton or London merely want to reach the other end as quickly as possible, and, with a legal limit up to twenty miles an hour, can cover the distance in two hours and a half, and, with an occasional illegal interval, easily in two hours.

Sussex Agricultural Express, 11 June 1909
