The Bottle-Shaped Car and Speeding
From the July 25, 2018, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1918 and 1943, 100 and 75 Years Ago.
1918: "An auto, the body in the form of a bottle, was on DeKalb streets advertising a Milwaukee beverage. The car passed on to other cities west later in the day."
Being a Milwaukee beverage, I have to wonder what kind of beverage it was and if they handed out free samples? Must have been the forerunner of the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile.
1943: "Sheriff A; Deisz has no respect for a speeding motorist at any time and especially now. While driving on the Sycamore road a machine passed his going to fast a speed for safety and Sheriff Deisz set out in pursuit, arresting the man a few minutes later."
Never A Good Idea To Pass A Cop While Speeding. --RoadDog
