A KwaZulu-Natal driver filmed a passenger bus speeding through the Town Hill area in Pietermaritzburg despite road signs indicating drivers to reduce their speed to 60km/h.
The bus driver who was filmed driving at over 100km/h seemingly ignored signs requiring motorists to slow down to speeds as low as 40km/h.
According to Arrive Alive, road traffic signs can also prescribe speed limits which may be lower or higher than the general limits applicable on a public road.

Briefly News reports on a truck driver who was speeding and lost control of his large vehicle.
Dashcam footage from inside and outside the truck shows the driver losing control of the trailer as it dislodges from the vehicle. As a result, there is debris littering the road.
A local truck company has sufficient evidence from cameras on the vehicle to charge its employee with negligent driving.
The video shows three camera angles: side, inside and rear. The video clearly shows the driver was speeding and overtook another truck on a dangerous section of the road.
The driver and his assistant even hoot as they pass the other vehicle, and a few seconds later, the duo hear the destruction at the rear of their vehicle. The assistant immediately leaves the cab as the truck slows down with the load littered between the two.
