A Ticket for Carl Fisher

This small item concerning Indianapolis Motor Speedway Founder and President Carl Fisher and a speeding ticket he received was published in the Indianapolis Star on March 8, 1910. The citing officer was a man referred to as Patrolman Stone. He nabbed Fisher on North Meridian Street the previous Sunday (March 6). He reported to the Central Police Station the following day (March 7). He was told to appear in court March 8 at 9 AM. My guess is he was driving his Stoddard-Dayton, a marques he sold at his dealership, the Fisher Automobile Company. There is no information about the speed he was traveling or how much it was in excess of the posted limit.
