Gareth Cliff's speeding case postponed

Pretoria - 5FM DJ Gareth Cliff appeared in the Centurion Magistrate's Court on Wednesday for speeding, the National Prosecuting Authority said.

Regional spokesperson Medupi Simasiku said the case would continue in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on March 16.

"It was postponed because there is an inquiry into whether his driver's licence should be suspended or not."

Cliff is accused of travelling at 182km/h in a 120km/h zone on the R21 in Lyttelton, Pretoria, on Tuesday.

He was arrested after being caught by the high speed unit. He said he had been on his way home after filming Idols in Durban.

He faces charges of speeding and reckless or negligent driving.

    I'm a fan, and I'm a little sorry he was caught because I've done that speed in a vehicle that was a lot less safe. Anyways, let justice take its course. Not gonna stop listening to him though!

    I LOVE opinionated people. They are far better than people who are quiet, too afraid to utter their opinion. Afrikaans language has a good word for it "draadsitter". People who sit on the fence & don't have the balls to have an opinion. Who are to afraid of not being liked should they speak their mind. PATHETIC It's like people on facebook who are just there, never commenting, never having an opinion!! Pathetic. Spying from a distance. Cowardly. Dead. Boring!!! Give me Gareth any day at least I'd know exactly where I stand with him.

    He must be treated like everyone else who breaks the law. There must be no special treatment because he is a celeb. Lock him up and revoke his licence.

    Speed Kills have we not seen that time and time again, laws are inplace to protect us, how many people could handle a vehicle if it loses control at a high speed, not many, people in general should lose the priviledge to drive if they so grossly break traffic laws.
