On Friday, Limpopo traffic officers apprehended three speeders on the N1 highway.
In a Mercedes-Benz, one of the drivers hit 225 km/h.
The three are scheduled to appear in court soon to face reckless and careless driving charges.
As holidaymakers hit the roads for the Christmas break, three motorists were caught for speeding on the N1 highway in Limpopo on Friday.
On Friday, the driver of a Mercedes-Benz A200 exceeded the 120km/h speed limit while travelling along the N1 near Naboomspruit.
"The silly season is upon us, and our law enforcement officials are out in force to ensure that unruliness, recklessness, and disdain for the law do not result in needless loss of life," said Matome Taueatsoala, a spokeswoman for the Limpopo Department of Transport.
A second driver, 42, was arrested after he was spotted speeding at 203 km/h in a VW Golf, while a Mercedes-Benz Vito driver, 39, was captured speeding at 174 km/h.
On allegations of reckless and negligent driving, the three are likely to appear in court soon.
Thousands of cars took to the N1 on Friday, increasing traffic in the province ahead of the holiday season. On Friday, almost 12 000 vehicles traveled through the Kranskop Toll Gate in less than five hours, according to Taueatsoala.
Meanwhile, ER24 paramedics confirmed the death of a 27-year-old woman who was hit by a minibus taxi on the N1 south of Polokwane on Friday evening as she attempted to cross the highway.
Her body was discovered in the middle of the road.
The incident caused no injuries to anyone in the minibus taxi.
