Laws are made to keep us safe. Let me start with that observation. With that being said, most of us have been issued a traffic citation at one point in our driving career. If we have been driving for very long, we may have collected several. On the other side, more attune, studious drivers may have none. Where do you fall? Do you remember your first speeding ticket?
The speeding ticket has been around for a long time. It may be hard to believe that the first speeding tickets were handed out to drivers in 1896, but they were. Mind you, the speed limits were much slower then, but nonetheless, tickets were given. They issued the first-ever speeding ticket to a man named, Walter Arnold. Mr. Arnold was caught driving 13 mph in an area where the speed limit was, brace yourselves... only 3 mph!
I know! I too was shocked by this information! I wonder what Mr. Arnold would think about the speed limits we drive today? Now, that would be a conversation I would have loved to have been a part of!
How about you? Do you remember your first speeding ticket?
