Did you know the first ever speeding ticket was issued in Newport, RI in 1904.
This is so Rhode Island it hurts. Driving like an asshole is just the way of life here. Whether its speeding, texting, or driving recklessly, if your not breaking a traffic law, your kinda not a true Rhode Islander. The thing that’s great about Aquidneck Island is that we all know where the cops like to hide. We know where we should drive slow and where we can drive twice the speed limit. We know that Middletown cops won’t hesitate to give you a ticket, while Newport and Portsmouth cops you stand a fighting chance. We’re an island that has a need for speed, so its no surprise to hear the first ever speeding ticket was issued here.
