"People don't want to learn. You mean, they didn't see the videos that were doing rounds on social media of vehicles being swept away by water?"

Dinnee Diddaa Roorroo pointed out:

"Not good at all, there's a big difference between brave and stupid. Early this year or last year, poor souls were lost in Kenya because of such a stupid drive."

Freddy Magwai called for legal action:

"Arrests must be made for these kinds of stupid reckless acts."

Magagasi Dlams offered a different view:

"I was not scared to watch this. Truck full of people is heavy. Water can't wipe it easy. Don't try this with Quantum or small car, you gone."

Wisdom Mujuru expressed dismay:

"That was not, and will never be, a good idea."

Man records himself driving over 200km/h while disregarding speed limit, Mzansi is not impressed

In yet another hair-raising video involving a reckless driver, Briefly News reported that a clip was posted online and it showed a man driving his Mercedes recklessly in a bid to either impress or scare his friend who was in the passenger seat.

The cellphone footage showed that he managed to reach a hair-raising 200km/h and exceed it. He kept that high speed for a while and it's unclear whether he reduced it or not as the focus was then shifted to him.

Peeps on Facebook pointed out the driver's ill-informed decision of recording the misdeed and showing his face as well.
