5 Mar 2018, Cape Town: A Lamborghini driver’s need for speed came to an abrupt halt when City of Cape Town traffic officers arrested him just after 01:00 on Monday morning.
The suspect was arrested on a charge of reckless and negligent driving after he was caught travelling well in excess of 250 km/h on the N1 between Sable Road and Plattekloof.
An additional charge of defeating the ends of justice was added to the docket as the vehicle had no registration plates or other identifying marks.
‘This incident is yet another example of the absolute disdain some road users have for the rule of law. I’m not sure how anyone thinks driving at such high speed on a public road is acceptable under any circumstances.
We are usually flooded with complaints about the behaviour of public transport drivers, but the fact is that the behaviour of many categories of road users is nothing short of atrocious,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.
