A car and a motorbike were both captured going dangerously fast on the highway in Johannesburg.

A video of a motorist clocking 322km/h on the R21 just outside Kempton Park had been shared over 1,700 times on Twitter since being posted by crime activist Yusuf Abramjee at 5.22pm on Saturday, reports Kempton Express.

It had been viewed over 100,000 times.

Judging by the footage, it seems the video had been filmed by a passenger. The voice of a man speaking in Afrikaans can be heard.
