Saturday 13th September 1902
Alfred Nipper of Prospect Place,Weston Super Mare, England was riding his 1898 Werner Motorcycle on Bristol Road, Worle, Somerset when he was reported for the following offence as written on the summons.
“Then being the driver of a certain carriage (to wit a motorcycle) on a certain highway there situate called Bristol Road unlawfully did ride the same furiously thereon so as then to endanger the lives and limbs of passengers on the said highway”
This is believed to be the first summons issued in Somerset for a motoring offence. Mr Nipper was fined Seven shillings and Six pence. The summons is now in the possession of Mr Nippers great nephew Laurie Hatchard of Kingsley Cheshire.
