The world’s first speeding ticket was issued in 1896. Where did it happen?

London, England

Walter Arnold was driving four times the limit, at an astonishing speed of 8 miles per hour. Back in those days, the speed limit was 2 miles per hour – you could easily walk faster. The driver was eventually arrested after being chased by a police officer on a bicycle.
