Jub Jub trial: No speed signs visible
Johannesburg - There were no speed signs on the road where Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala crashed into a group of schoolchildren, the Protea Magistrate's Court heard on Thursday.
Taking the stand for a fourth day, accident reconstruction expert Renier Balt told the court the road was in good condition, but that no speed signs were visible.
The defence has been critical of Balt's earlier reports, saying they contain many mistakes.
Tshabalala's lawyer Mlungiseleli Soviti said on Thursday that Balt's report mentioned that all road signs were visible.
"What did you mean by all road signs were visible?" he asked.
"I referred to barrier lines," replied Balt.
Balt has testified that the two Mini Coopers the two men were driving were speeding towards oncoming traffic when the crash occurred in March last year. They were allegedly drag racing.
One of the cars skidded into a group of schoolchildren in Mdlalose Road, Protea North, Soweto, killing four boys and injuring two.
Maarohanye and Tshabalala face charges of murder, attempted murder, and driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
The trial continues.
