What is the speed limit on the 2x2 non-motorway road?
What are typical fine amounts for speeding? Are they different from province to province?

120 km/h on all highways and major R(regional roads). But SA roads are too good and generally under policed and the country too vast, so there are long stretches of road with no law enforcement and where there is plenty of opportunity to speed (Although they are curbing this by installing average speed cameras). As South Africans we usually drive small but fast German sports sedans, and we are a very hard headed bunch who like bending the laws.

For the speed I was doing in a 120km/h zone, I would have been fined about R1000-R2000, less than $150 or even outright arrest. I do not believe they are different from province to province, there is a central or Federal Agency presumably sets these things. But yeah what's life without a little risk?

The road on the left is the Old Pretoria Road/ Ou Pretoria Weg, which was the main highway before the highway on the right was built.

Any news on road construction and upgrades?

I heard they were planning some upgrade works on the N3, right?

Also will they build the N21 in Cape Town?
