Mother and daughter arrested for reckless and negligent driving and interfering with officers

RECKLESS DRIVING: A 28-year-old woman was arrested for doing 107 km/h in a 70 km/h zone down Swartkoppies Road. Her mother (49) was also arrested for interfering with the arresting officers.

EMPD officers apprehended a mother and daughter for reckless and negligent driving and interfering with officers.

The arrest took place on January 14 between 12.30pm and 2.30pm while officers were enforcing speed limits on Swartkoppies Road, in the vicinity of Hennie Alberts Street.

At 12.25pm Speed Enforcement Unit members stopped a white BMW 1 series for clocking 107 km in a 70 km/h zone, driven by a 28-year old female.

According to Kobeli Mokheseng, acting spokesperson for EMPD, the driver alighted her motor vehicle and demanded to see her readings on the speed camera, before she went back in the BMW and locked herself in until her mother came to the rescue. Mokheseng explained when the mother arrived she started calling arresting officers names.

Back up was called and Brackendowns SAPS members responded where the driver was requested to step out of the vehicle before she was arrested along with her mother.

The 49-year-old women and her daughter were detained at Brackendowns Police Station, charged with reckless and negligent driving, resisting arrest, and failing to furnish information with interfering with officers while on duty.

They are expected to appear in the Palmridge Magistrate’s Court soon.
