KwaZulu-Natal MEC for transport, community safety and liaison, Bheki Cele, has vowed to deal harshly with "Gauteng speedsters who drive as if they own public roads whenever they are in the province".

Cele's comment comes days after 163 speedsters were caught driving fast cars recklessly with their registration plates removed during the Easter holidays. Most of those arrested were from Gauteng and provinces other than KwaZulu-Natal.

He said he would not tolerate the "ignorance" of speedsters.
