2016-06-22 06:00

A 27-year-old suspect was arrested for exceeding the speed limit on the N2 near Ballito last Tuesday, 14 June.

The motorist was nabbed reportedly doing 202km per hour in a 120km per hour zone. He was detained at Umhlali SAPS and later appeared in court for a bail application.

The Weekly could not confirm whether the motorist was driving under the influence of alcohol and whether there were any other passengers in the vehicle.

KZN MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison Mxolisi Kaunda commended the provincial traffic officials who made the arrest.

Kaunda urged all motorists using provincial roads to comply with the law and refrain from speeding.

“Lawbreakers will not be tolerated. This arrest must be a lesson to all motorists who we are getting tough on offenders. As the government we cannot win the fight against the scourge of road fatalities alone, therefore, we urge road users to work with us by doing the right thing, which is obeying the law,” he said.

Kaunda said an increased number of traffic officers were on the roads throughout the province during the long weekend to ensuring motorists adhered to road rules.
