    Well done driver for taking out another oxygen thief. Firstly, there are pedestrian bridges for a reason. Secondly, it is illegal to be on a national freeway. Therefore being lazy, stupid, and a criminal offender equals death. Pity many others like her don't face the same fate.

      Dear Joe..have you considered that this was a human being that was killed. In many ways you are justifiably angry because this person could have cost innocent people there lives.

    This death is tragic, of course, but there are rules and laws to keep the roads safe for pedestrians and other vehicles travelling at high speed. Unfortunately there is total lawlessness in SA and the authorities are to be blamed 100% because they are too occupied with bribes and corruption so that they are not focussed on law enforcement!
