note: Info from SASM.
Magistrates have been granted extra powers to suspend
driving licences in instances where motorists exceed 30km/h above
the speed limit in urban areas (eg: 90+ km/h in a 60 km/h zone) and
40km/h above the speed limit outside an urban area.
This is now law as from 20/11/2010
and magistrate where necessary can
flex their muscles and now suspend your licence. The simple
principle now applies do not speed under any circumstances. The risk
is great, the outcome is disastrous.
License Suspension now law.
