Johannesburg - A man stopped and fined R800 for speeding on the East Rand was arrested moments later when he began speeding again, Ekurhuleni metro police said on Sunday.

A man in a white VW Polo hatchback was stopped on the R23 Heidelberg Road in Brakpan for going 104km/h in an 80km/h zone, Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng said in a statement.

After he was given an R800 fine, he sped off, wheels spinning, and was clocked doing 117km/h. Traffic police chased him and, once they had cornered him, arrested him.

He was one of 15 people arrested and charged with reckless or negligent driving on Sunday morning, and would appear in the Brakpan Magistrate's Court soon.
