Fun facts

The world’s first recorded road trip took place in Germany, in 1888. Bertha Benz, wife of the first car inventor, Karl Benz, travelled from Mannheim to Pforzheim with her sons. They travelled 106 km (66 mi) in the third experimental Benz car, which had a maximum speed of 16 km/h (10 m/h). She even took this trip without her husband’s consent or knowledge!
