A man was caught driving at a speed of 205km/h on the N2 in Fairbreeze near Gingindlovu

on Wednesday morning, the KwaZulu-Natal transport department said.

"He was driving a silver BMW car at a speed of 205km/h in a zone of 120 km/h," spokesman Kwanele Ncalane said.

The man was released on R1000 bail and was expected to appear in the Gingindlovu Magistrate's Court on Wednesday afternoon.

Transport MEC Willies Mchunu condemned the motorist's behaviour.

"It is such reckless actions that are costing innocent people's lives," Mchunu said.

"Just last weekend alone we lost 25 people in various accidents across the province.

"Surely this is alarming and requires all of us as road users to change our mindset and respect the rules," he said.
