DUR­BAN – A fool­ish KZN res­i­dent faces charges of reck­less and neg­li­gent driv­ing and driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated af­ter he clocked 213 km/ h on the South Coast on Fri­day.

Pro­vin­cial trans­port depart­ment spokesper­son Kwanele Ncalane said that the man, driv­ing a MercedesBenz, was stopped by traf­fic po­lice on the N2 near Park Rynie.

Ncalane said trans­port MEC Will- ies Mchunu was out­raged when he heard about the speed at which the man was trav­el­ling. “We call upon the courts to im­pose a harsh sen­tence on this man who en­dan­gered his life and the lives of oth­ers on our roads,” Ncalane said.

“It is clear that er­rant driv­ers are to blame for the high num­ber of road deaths and we aim to com­bat this,” Ncalane said.
