Road Accident

Fatal car crash that caused a stir on social media

A young man took to his Twitter account to share the pictures of a fatal car crash, he said that the car was driving at 256km/h and the car is identified as a Golf 6 GTI. The post caused a stir on Twitter and people started talking about it. 

General speed limits are as follows: 60 km/h on a public road within an urban area. 100 km/h on a public road outside an urban area which is not a freeway; and 120 km/h on every freeway.The speed limit tolerance in South Africa is 10km/h. While it used to be 10% of the speed, it was simplified to allow for a smoother and more efficient system to be used. This means that you will only be fined if you are caught going over 10km/h faster than the posted speed limit.

Speeding can contributes to the increased risk of losing vehicle control. At higher speeds, cars become more difficult to manoeuvre - especially on corners or curves or where evasive action is necessary. The forces experienced by the human body in a collision also increase as the speed increases.

Some people were concerned about the speed that the driver was driving at and others said that they also drive at that speed because driving according to the speed limits can be boring and can leads to delays and some people are used to speed when driving because it excites them. Let us be vigilant on the roads.
