In 1851, the Summary Jurisdiction Act set new standards of behaviour on the roads. It became illegal to leave a cart unharnessed on a public road; to leave stones, timber, dung, or turf 'so as to cause danger';

to have dogs unmuzzled or unlogged within 50 yards of a road; to carry loads that projected more than 2 feet beyond the wheels of carts; to allow pigs to wander on the roads; to sell beasts on a road, or to fly a kite from a road.

Finally, continuing a process of labelling that had begun with the census, the ordnance survey, and the tenement valuation, all carts had to display their owners' names 'in legible letters not less than an inch in height'.

Between the 1850s and the early 1880s, the Constabulary were given the power to search poachers on the public road; the compulsory registration of births, deaths, and marriages was established in 1864; dogs had to be licensed;

the opening hours of public houses were further restricted, and Sunday closing was introduced.
