    Pistorius has 8 outstanding traffic fines

    Johannesburg - Murder-accused paralympian Oscar Pistorius has eight outstanding traffic fines totalling R5 545, according to a report on Wednesday.

    Pistorius has a black Mini Cooper, a black BMW 1-series, a black Volvo and a black BMW 7-series registered in his name, according to Beeld.

    His love of fast cars is well known, and he recently negotiated the purchase of a Mercedes-Benz McLaren supercar. He regularly tweeted photos of fast cars that he had test-driven.

    In 2012, Pistorius was fined R1 560 for driving the 7-series at 160km/h in a 120km/h zone on the N1 highway near Johannesburg.

    In the same year, he was fined R560 for talking on his cellphone while driving.

    Four other R560 fines - two involving the BMW 1-series, one for the Volvo and another for the Mini - were for not displaying front number plates.

    In 2010, Pistorius was fined R1 000 for driving the Mini Cooper at 150km/h in a 120km/h zone.

    New York Times Magazine sportswriter Michael Sokolov described Pistorius as “a bit mad”, referring in an article to an incident in which Pistorius allegedly drove at 240km/h in the rain with the writer in his car.
