"If there was a guy called Imraan in that car, he escaped that accident miraculously. I am sure he has used all his nine lives," Smith told SowetanLIVE on Tuesday evening.
Smith said the fact that the person behind the recording had left the scene, would save him from being criminally prosecuted.
"I hoped he has learnt his lesson and would not go back to his foolish and reckless ways."
Despite the horrific crash, Smith said a few nights later, petrol heads were back racing on the freeway.
"It doesn't help what we do, people just don't want to learn."
Smith said Cape Town officials had met with the city's senior legal counsel on Tuesday to amend the draft Traffic By-law.
This was an attempt to see if it could include impounding or forfeiture when petrol heads are caught driving recklessly.
He said they were still getting legal advice on whether they could add it to their own by-law.
