In a court in Cairns on Tuesday the 3rd of July in 1951 -
Mr. Bennett remarked that both his clients had "beautiful new cars" in which it was difficult to judge the speed. He added: "These are modern new cars - not like mine. Your Worship. I can not afford one of these - I am only a solicitor."
One of those clients was a Vivian HEDGELONG who was charged with speeding, ie. 40.9 miles an hour in a 30 miles per hour speed zone.
