While most people get a ticket or are even arrested for driving too fast, one man was stopped when he drove too slow.

The 45-year-old man was stopped when police spotted him driving at a slow speed on the N1, north in Midrand, South Africa.

The man was driving at 30 kilometers per hour, or 18 miles per hour, in the fast lane of the road on Saturday night, Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.

“He was caught driving his Mazda 6 in the fast lane, with his vehicle head lights off, in a 120 kilometer, or 74 mile per hour, zone,” Minnaar said.
When the man was pulled over and ordered to get out of the car, the man struggled to stand up straight.

The arresting officer took a breathalyzer test. The man turned out to be intoxicated at more than three times the legal limit, Minnaar added.
The man was arrested and taken to the police station in Midrand where he faces charges including drunk driving.
