Constable Exe**** said:- On August 2* the defendant drove a motor-car along Queen’s-parade, Clifton Hill, at a speed of 12 miles an hour. The by-law sets the maximum speed for motor-cars at eight miles an hour. The defendant was fined */* **** *** ******. Queens Parade is just around the corner from me. I'll be watching my speed along there from now on.
