Letter regarding Motor Car Traffic in Inverness-shire

Page 1 of 2
Copy of a letter from Mr. Anderson, Procurator Fiscal, Inverness to the Chief Constable of Invernessshire, Inverness. 24th August 1908. The letter regards Motor Car Traffic and the fact that there has been more than one accident on the road between Inverness and Fort Augustus due to speeding. He is aware of the reckless driving through verbal complaints and through his own observance. Mr. Anderson suggests to the Chief Constable that he should make a presentation to the Local Authority that, under the 1903 Motor Cars Act, a speed limit of 10mph on the Foyers and Drumnadrochit Roads should be imposed. He does realise that such a restriction would require police patrolling but he feels that this would be an advantage to the public
