The Gauteng Traffic Police High Speed unit arrested five drivers earlier today who were found excessively on Gauteng major roads, namely the N4 Pretoria to Mpumalanga and N1 Pretoria to Johannesburg.
The arrest involved a 41-year- old male driver who was caught excessively driving BMW M4 at 216 km/h on a prescribed maximum limit of 120 km/h zone.
Furthermore, the four reckless and negligent drivers were also apprehended on the N1 and N4 on Thursday night and appeared at various magistrates courts this morning and all suspects were charged formally with reckless and negligent driving as well as an alternative charge of exceeding the general speed limit.
The Gauteng Traffic Police, Sello Maremane says, the Gauteng Traffic Police High Speed Unit will continue to conduct such operations and arrest motorists who continuously endanger the lives of road users, this after road users are urged to adhere to the prescribed maximum speed limit on a freeway which remains 120 km/h at maximum.
Maremane continued by saying all drivers found disobeying road safety rules and exceeding the prescribed speed limit will be severely punished.
