Fun fact: The first person charged with speeding was going 13 km/h
According to the Guinness World Records, the first person to be handed a speeding ticket was Walter Arnold of the United Kingdom on Jan. 28, 1896.
Arnold was driving his horseless carriage — a German-made Benz that he had imported to Britain the previous year — through the village of Paddock Wood, Kent, at more than four times the speed limit – 13 km/h, which is roughly eight m.p.h.
An officer on a bicycle chased him down and charged him with breaking the law on four counts: using a locomotive without a horse on a public road, allowing the locomotive to be operated by fewer than three people, traveling at a speed faster than two m.p.h and failing to clearly display his name and address on the locomotive.
He was later found guilty on all four counts and was fined £4 7s in total, which is roughly $447 CAD in today’s currency.
