Furious motor driving - petty sessions

Hertfordshire Mercury, 7th July 1906


Henry Johnson, of Harrogate, who did not put in an appearance, was summoned for driving a motor-car at an excessive speed on the road between Ware and Standon, on June 16th. Supt Duke said that on 16th June, Constables were stationed at the two ends of a measured distance of four miles on the road in question. Defendant’s car passed the first point north of Ware at 12.24 p.m., and reached the second point opposite Old Hall College at 12.30 ½. It had thus travelled at the rate of 35 ½ miles an hour. P.C. Lewin and P.C. Gravestock gave evidence in support of this statement, the latter adding that the car went by him a distance of 80 yards before stopping at the northern point. Defendant was fined £5 and costs.
