LATE FOR WORK RUSH: Being late for work is no excuse to speed 62km/h above the limit, especially if you're doing it in your PJs (not pictured above) as one driver did in Benoni, November 2012.

JOHANNESBURG - Two drivers and a motorcyclist have been arrested by Ekurhuleni traffic cops for speeding in Benoni .

One of them, driving a black Mercedes and wearing pyjamas, was arrested after being clocked at 142km/h in an 80km/h zone on Snake Road.

A police spokesman said: "Although he was clad in pyjamas, he claimed that he was rushing to pick up his colleague as they were late for work."

COURT DATE SET

A 38-year-old man in a red Mercedes was caught at 134km/h and a biker was clocked at 136km/h on the same stretch of road.

The car driver gave no reason for speeding, the biker simply said he was en route to Carnival City as he planned to take his family there.

All three were released on R1000 bail to appear in court today (Nov 12, 2012).

A total of 241 drivers were clocked breaking the speed limit. The rest will get their notices of prosecution later.
