A new tradition - who's in? It's Fun Fact Friday. I'll share the first one:

The first person convicted of speeding was going eight mph.

According to Guinness World Records, the first person to be charged with speeding was Walter Arnold of the English village of Paddock Wood, Kent. On Jan. 28, 1896, Arnold was spotted going four times the speed limit in his 19th-century Benz—but since the speed limit at the time was just two miles per hour, that meant he was not going too fast by today's standards. The constable had to chase him down on his bicycle, issuing a ticket for £4 7s and earning Arnold the speedy distinction.

Sounds fun but this sort of fact is more common here in the UK than it is in the USA! Will think of something for next Friday! :D
