"Speedster" in court for bribing cop - now find out what speed he was going!
Johannesburg - A 38-year-old man will appear before the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday for attempting to bribe a metro police officer.
Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said the man who was allegedly speeding and driving recklessly was stopped by the officer at Kibler Park in Johannesburg on Wednesday.
"He was travelling along Impala Road, he was caught driving at 95km/h in a 60km/h zone. When the officer stopped and tried to give him a fine, he attempted to bribe him with R900."
Minnaar said the man was arrested and released on R1 000 bail the same day.
SHOOT: Thanks to new traffic laws and heightened enforcement, the definition of a speedster in SA has just had a major makeover. Be warned.
