Johannesburg - The driver of a Porsche caught doing over 200 km/h on the N3 highway in Germiston on Sunday, must have prayed for divine intervention to get him out of his troubles.

He definitely did not find grace in the eyes of the Metro police officer who pulled him over, despite confiding in the officer that he was actually rushing to church.
“A 30-year old male, with a female passenger, late for church, in a white Porsche Cayenne sedan, was caught doing 216km/h at 09:05,” said departmental spokesperson inspector Kobeli Mokheseng in a statement.
While he may have missed hearing the holy word on Sunday, the Porsche driver will be hearing those of a magistrate, when he appears in court next week on charges of reckless and negligent driving.
Another driver who was in a rush was also stopped in his tracks. The 34-year-old man was caught speeding at 199 km/h on the Albertina Sisulu Freeway, apparently to catch a flight from OR Tambo International Airport.
A total of 23 people were arrested for speeding on various highways in the Germiston, Tembisa and Edenvale area over the weekend, according to the statement.

All the arrested persons were taken to the Germiston, Olifantsfontein and Edenvale police stations respectively, where they were charged with reckless and negligent driving. Suspects will appear in the Germiston, Tembisa and Edenvale magistrates’ courts soon.
