Also arrested were the drivers of a Chrysler caught doing 207km/h and a Ford Fiesta travelling at 190km/h, said Ekurhuleni metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago. All of the drivers were men.
They were captured in normal speed operations in the vicinity of the Linksfield turnoff between 7am and 10am, along with 420 other drivers doing anything between 131km/h and 180km/h in the 120km/h speed limit zone, he said.
While these drivers would be fined, there was no option of admission of guilt for those caught going faster than 180km/h, said Kgasago. "If we are around, we arrest you on the spot," he said.
The three drivers arrested would face charges of exceeding the speed limit and reckless and negligent driving - and fines of not less than R5000.
