[VIDEO] Speedster clocks over 300 km/h on Joburg highway, JMPD investigating
Social media have reacted to a video that was shared over the weekend showing a driver filming his speedometer while tearing along the R21 highway in Johannesburg, clocking over 300 kilometers per hour and seemingly racing a motorcycle.
Kieno Kammies talks to Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) Chief David Tembe about the video showing a motorbike and car exceeding 300km/h on the R21 highway in broad daylight.
Tembe suspects it occurred near Ekurhuleni and says he will speak to the JMPD chief there.
We need to see what we can do because we can't allow that to happen on our roads.David Tembe, Chief - JMPD
He says they will attempt to track down the vehicle through the number plate and will use Sanrail to assist.
320km/hour is no admission of guilt, so he would have to be arrested and appear before the magistrate. He will probably be given a fine and a jail term of no less than two years...and his licence can be revoked or suspended from 6 months to two years.David Tembe, Chief - JMPD
