Durban Regional Court Magistrate Anand Maharaj is hoping to set a precedence by sentencing Omesh Ramnarain, who killed 2 cyclists through negligent driving, to 10 years imprisonment. “The number of people who lose their lives in road accidents in this country is unacceptably high… it’s beyond comprehension.
I believe this case is an opportunity to impose an exemplary sentence… to warn potential offenders that this is what could happen to them if they behave negligently” he stated. SADD – South Africans Against Drunk Driving congratulate Magistrate Maharaj for his decision and hope others will follow his lead to help deter these preventable and costly (both financial and emotional) crimes on our roads.
