First speeding ticket

First speeding ticket (?) issued.

28 January, 1896

The first person to be convicted of speeding was Walter Arnold of Kent on 28th January 1896. He was fined one shilling plus costs for doing 13 km/h which exceeded the 3.2 km/h limit at that time. This can be regarded as the world’s first speeding ticket though not in the literal sense. The first traffic ticket in the US was to Jacob German, incidentally for speeding.
