Speed limit in NH 48

There is some news for those using the national highway NH 48, especially the Chennai Bengaluru section.
There has been an introduction of speed limits for vehicles of different categories in the NH 48. There are different speed limits for cars, SUVs, autos, trucks, vans and heavy vehicles plying along the NH48.

We just happened to pass through one of these toll gates on the Chennai Bangalore section of NH 48, last Saturday, 29 October, 2016.

We noticed that there was a board indicating 3 different categories and speeds for each of these.
According to the notice board, the speed limit for autorickshaws is 60kmph, whereas trucks, vans and heavy vehicles can travel up to a speed of 80kmph, while cars, SUVs and other private vehicles can go up to a maximum speed of 100kmph.

The fine for exceeding the limit would be Rs.400/-, for first time offenders and Rs.1000/- for a repeat offence.

Our belief is that there are hidden speed guns installed along the route, which will be monitoring the speed of the vehicles passing through. These gadgets could be communicating with the next toll booth about vehicles violating the speed limit.

But, the question is, how will they know the number of the vehicle? So, it is possible that there could be cameras installed to capture the number plate also, when the vehicles approach a clickable distance.

So, folks. Be warned. Drive safe, when you are taking the NH 48 or Chennai Bengaluru section of the National Highway!

Why should I not take revenge?

This is what we do and have been doing since we have known man. Revenge seems to be a natural response to injustice that seems to target us... Registered & Protected DWYE-NHTO-NBNH-7FFM
