Transcription"Too fast - here is what a highway patrolman sees when he checks traffic with the radar speed meter: A dial that records the speeds of passing cars. The meter here shows a car in passing at 38 miles an hour. At the time the picture was taken the radar device was set up in a 30-mile zone, so the car was going 8 miles an hour too fast." - caption with cropped image published in The Fargo Forum, September 12, 1954, p. 16.
