A 45-year-old man was arrested for driving at a slow speed on the N1 north in Midrand, reports Johannesburg metro police department.

Spokesman Wayne Minnaar said the driver was traveling at 30km/h on the highway's fast lane on August 10, 2013.

LIGHTS OFF

Minnaar said: "He was caught driving with the vehicle's lights off, cruising on a national road that has a 120km/h zone."

When the driver was pulled over and instructed to get out of the car, he struggled to stand upright to take a breathalyser test, Minnaar said.

Minnaar said: "He tested 0.90mlg which is nearly four times above the legal limit of 0.24mlg."

The man was arrested and taken to the Midrand police station. He was expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court to face a drunk driving charge.
