211km/h BMW speedster in court
Johannesburg - A case of a motorist who was caught driving at 211km/h along the N12 in the North West was postponed in the Matlosana Traffic Court on Wednesday.
Khaphutshelo Nephumbada, 33, was caught speeding between Stilfontein and Klerksdorp on the afternoon of February 20 in his BMW, public safety spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said.
Nephumbada, a sales representative, also allegedly nearly ran over a traffic official who tried to stop him after the speed camera clocked him at 91km/h over the permissible speed limit of 120km/h.
The officer managed to record his car registration and traced him to a beverages company in Klerksdorp.
Nephumbada will return to court on March 16.
