Mr. Vanderbilt and His Motor Vehicle.

The New York Times
June 12, 1900


Special to The New York Times.

NEWPORT, June 11.—William K. Vanderbilt, Jr., to-day visited the police station and had an extended conversation with the Chief in regard to the running of Mr. Vanderbilt's motor vehicle at a high rate of speed in the streets. The Chief informed Mr. Vanderbilt that a number of complaints had been made, and that it was evident that the driving laws were being violated. Mr. Vanderbilt said that since he has been in Newport he has never speeded his motor vehicle in the streets of Newport beyond ten miles an hour, and that he felt perfectly competent to handle the machine. He said that he had no desire to evade the laws, and that if at any time he exceeded the legal speed he would stop on notice being given.
