Four others who broke the 120km/h speed limit were nabbed by police during the early hours the day. They were caught in Germiston between 05:00 and 11:00 along the N3 south near the Rand Airport off-ramp.
Spokesperson for the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department, acting Lieutenant Colonel Kobeli Mokheseng, said the speedsters were caught by officers from the High Speed Unit.
He said at 05:27 officers stopped a white VW Golf 7 driven by a 33-year old male with a female passenger, for clocking 202km/h.
“The wrongdoer alleged that he was on his way home. Other law breakers were caught doing speeds between 162 and 185km/h,’” he said.
Mokheseng said all offenders were detained and charged with reckless and negligent driving at the Germiston police station.
They are expected to appear in the Germiston Magistrate’s Court soon.
