Caution to drivers

It should be made known to all drivers of vehicles on the public roads, that from the 7th of October, under the new Act of Parliament, it will be in the power of the Magistracy, upon conviction of carelessness and furious driving, to convict offending parties to the treadmill, instead of letting them off with a fine, as under the old law.

Waterford Mail 6 October 1838
