You Could Drive Faster On Indian Roads Now
For the first time, India will now have standard speed limits. The Centre has given its approval to increase the highest speed limit for cars in urban areas to 70 kilometre per hour (kmph) up from the earlier 60 kmph. For cargo carriers, the new limit set is 60 kmph, and for two-wheelers it is 50 kmph. Also, the highest speed limit for cars running on expressways has been increased to 120 kmph from the existing 100 kmph. On the national highways, this limit has been raised to 100 kmph from the earlier 80 kmph.
