A KwaZulu-Natal man faces charges of reckless and negligent driving and driving while intoxicated after he clocked 213km/h on the south coast on Friday.

Provincial transport department spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said that the man, driving a Mercedes-Benz, was stopped by traffic police on the N2 near Park Rynie.

Ncalane said transport MEC Willies Mchunu was outraged when he heard about the speed at which the man was travelling.

“The MEC reacted strongly and obviously this practice is completely unacceptable. We call upon the courts to impose a harsh sentence on this man who endangered his life and the lives of others on our roads,” Ncalane said.

“With the holiday season approaching and the closure of schools for the long weekend, we have intensified our enforcement operations across the province. It is clear that errant drivers are to blame for the high number of road deaths and we aim to combat this,” Ncalane said.
