Cape Town - A 38-year-old television personality and musician was among the motorists nabbed for exceeding the speed limit by up to 60km per hour in Edenvale on Saturday morning.

Ekurhuleni Metro Police spokesperson Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng said an operation was held between 06:00 and 11:00 on Andries Pretorius Street by the department’s speed enforcement unit.

“Eight risk takers [were apprehended] for exceeding the 60km/h limited speed,” he said.

“[Among them was] a 38-year old well-known female television presenter and music artist driving an Audi sedan. Citing that she was late for a flight, she was caught doing 119km/h between 9th Street and 9th Avenue.”

The rest of the motorist clocked speeds of between 97 and 123km/h. 

The speedsters were charged with reckless and negligent driving at the Edenvale police station.

Mokheseng told News24 they have since been released on R1000 bail and will appear in the Edenvale Magistrate’s Courts soon.
