Durban - A motorist was slapped with a R18 000 speeding fine for clocking 220km/h, in a 120km/h zone along the South Coast, the KwaZulu-Natal department of transport said on Monday.

Transport MEC Mxolisi Kaunda in a statement commended the Park Rynie's Department of Transport’s Road Traffic Inspectorate team for arresting Ivan Botha, 28, on August 14, for speeding in a Golf 6 GTI at 220km/h on the N2 national road. 

Kaunda said in a statement that Botha had been held in custody at the Scottburgh police station. 

"The Scottburgh’s magistrate today [Monday] handed down a fine of R18 000," said Kaunda.

"[This] should be a great lesson to all who endanger our lives. Speedsters are like murderers, because at any moment their actions could lead to devastating consequences, including death and maiming of other road users. 

"More so, we commend the great work of the department’s Road Traffic Inspectorate team in the Park Rynie station, who always catch speedsters travelling to the South Coast.  It is high time all road users, especially motorists, started taking our call for road safety seriously, and realise that it’s about life and death," said Kaunda.
