Johannesburg- A 33-year-old man was arrested for clocking 202km/h on Sunday morning, police said.

Four others who broke the 120km/h speed limit were nabbed by police during the early hours of Sunday. They were caught in Germiston between 05:00 and 11:00 along the N3 south near the Rand Airport off-ramp.

Spokesperson for the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department, acting Lieutenant Colonel Kobeli Mokheseng, said the speedsters were caught by officers from the High Speed Unit. 

He said at 05:27 officers stopped a white VW Golf 7 driven by a 33-year old male with a female passenger, for clocking 202km/h. 

"The wrongdoer alleged that he was on his way home. Other law breakers were caught doing speeds between 162 and 185km/h,’" he said.

Mokheseng said all offenders were detained and charged with reckless and negligent driving at the Germiston police station.

 They are expected to appear in the Germiston Magistrate's Court soon.
