Although the film is set in "a fictitious time and place", they are driving on the wrong side of the road. When we see an aerial view of the streets, the junctions are marked out for driving on the left-hand side of the road UK style, but the cars are driving on the right.
During the end credits, there is a scene shown where Potter tries to explain to the police about seeing the Borrowers.
