A 32-year-old doctor was speeding in her Mercedes-Benz when she was intercepted by the Ekurhuleni Metro Police for doing 178km/h in a 120km zone on the N12 at about 06:45 in the morning today.
They tried to Stop her, but she sped off and a High speed Chase that went on for 10 Kilometres ensued untill she stopped her vehicle.
The Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department has defended its officers after they arrested a doctor, despite the doctor's work being of utmost importance. Some can even say more important than the traffic cops' but the two are not mutually exclusive.
The EMPD said the doctor's vehicle did not display a portable flashing device signalling that she was a doctor-on-call.
There is the shortage of staff members right now as we speak because of the people who are seeking high rank on their job. There are people who need the eyes of a doctor always so if they die we know where the blame is going to. I’m not saying the speed is good, but as she gave her explanation why can’t you understand it and gave her a ticket so that you she won’t delay her to save lives.
