Man arrested for exceeding speed limit in Alberton

Alberton SAPS urges motorists to obey road rules and sign so as to avoid being in the wrong side of the law.

Alberton SAPS recently arrested a man for exceeding the speed limit on a public road in a residential area.

Members of the SAPS detained approximately 20 people for various criminal offences since the beginning of this month.

According to Alberton SAPS spokesperson captain Manare Ramotshela, the EMPD officers found that the driver had no good cause to be driving at that speed at the time.

“The suspect was then informed that he was being taken into police custody for breaking our municipal council’s laws and his constitutional rights were also granted,” said Ramotshela.

Road rules in South Africa state that speed the maximum speed when travelling in a residential area is 60km/h and the apprehended driver was travelling at 101km/h.

Officers from the Alberton police station are looking into a case of reckless and negligent driving.

“You should always follow the law of our country to avoid having a criminal record. Minor offences or other scheduled offences will appear on your record, and, for a while, you will be seen as a criminal,” Ramotshela declared.

The Alberton SAPS station commander, Olven Letloanyane, commended the staff for a job well done.
The suspect will shortly appear in the local court of law.
