For what it is worth, I spoke to a guy last week, who knows the laws etc, or think he knows, or has a mate who knows, or who else knows mwahahaha.

Anyway, he said that the speed signs up at the moment on the Roadwork sections are RECOMMENDED speeds. Something to do with the colour of the sign board or something, being Yellow and black.

According to him, if you fight the fine, they will let you go.

Not sure about this, so don't qoute me on this  :ricky:

Vat nou my raad. Ek was al in die Hof met n spoed van 221kph in n 120kph zone.

Vind uit WIE die landdros of aanklaer whatever(vergeet altyd wie is wie) daar gaan wees daai dag, die ene wat met jou saak gaan werk.

Gaan voor die tyd en praat met hom/haar, se jy is skuldig en jy wil graag die boete uitsort buite die hof. 99% vd tyd sal jy met hom/haar kan ooreenkom wat die boete gaan wees, jy betaal dit en jy voertsek.

Vermy die binnekant vd hof so ver as wat jy kan!!!! Daar gaan jy af chop! Moet ook nie daai dag NIE opdaag nie. Hulle reik net daar n lasbrief uit en sal joudieselfde middag nog kom haal!

My boete was tussen R25 000 en R45 000. EK het voor die tyd gaan mooi praat, en het weg gekom met net n R4000 boete, ek was nie eers binne in die hof nie.

Vermy die hof, daar wil almal shine vang en van jou n "voorbeeld" maak, jy gaan af chop!!

EK het ook nie n prokureur gevat nie. Ek was alleen daar in en uit........

I need this type of advice, I have a notification that a court summons is on the way, I was clocked at 123km/h in an 80km/h zone, farking highway modifications..... >:D
It was Peaches' car, but I was driving....

There is nothing you can do about the past and you can't predict the future...all you have is the now...live it to the fullest.

Hmmm.

Ok, went to the Wynberg court, floor 3, court 10...



40 minutes later after the okes in trouble for that day had been dealt with, us unwashed also-in-troubles filed in.

Didn't take a photo, I'm stupid but not that stupid.

20 others in front of me, more behind, all in trouble to some degree or another.

My turn,

"Hi, I have a fine and a non-admission of guilt for a false number plate. I am guilty as sin and sorry too and want to know what I do now?"

He scribbles something on the fine, stamps it and smiles handing me back the fine,

"You don't want go to court about that second one. That is fraud and the courts don't like it. Play your cards wrong in court and it's two years in jail!"




Two days let alone two years in jail is not even worth thinking about! R2500.00 seems fair considering that its been 3 years that I rode like that and who knows what I would have chalked up given how I ride. He gave me half off the R300 for undersized and non-SABS number plate.

"Thanks, cheers"

Off to another queue.




Bend over and painfully extract R2650.00.

"Thank you sir"

I am officially not a criminal any more... for now.
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.

Great news - glad you managed to get through this ordeal with nothing more that a seriously bruised wallet  :thumleft:
Life is tough - get a helmet!

R2500?? Still better than jail, but hell, ain't it a bit rough?

I got R4000 for doing 221kph in a 120 zone, without nr plate, without licence disc.

Or was I just lucky?
