Johannesburg - A-50-year old man was arrested on Sunday morning for travelling at an average speed of 222km/h along the N14 highway near the Engen Petroport, Lanseria, Gauteng traffic police said.

Spokesperson Busaphi Nxumalo said the man, a mechanical engineer from Royal Haskoning, was travelling on his black Suzuki GSXR motorcycle when he was caught.

"He was charged for reckless driving with the alternative charge of exceeding the general speed limit of 120km/h," said Nxumalo.

He was expected to appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Nxumalo said 30 Gauteng motorists were arrested during the weekend's special operation on charges related to reckless driving, inconsiderate driving and high speeds.

In Durban, a driver was arrested for speeding at 205km/h on the N2 near Ellingham on Sunday, the Road Traffic Inspectorate said.

The 29-year-old driver was released on R4 000 bail, said spokesperson Zinhle Mngomezulu.

The driver was driving from Port Edward to Durban.

He will appear in the Scottsburgh Magistrate's Court on Monday.
