  1. I was also wondering that these cameras are installed over 6 months and so far they are only doing the e-challans for “Violation of White Line at Signals”.

    But before these idiots start this working, they should first clearly mention on each road that what is the max. speed allowed and its tolerance.

    I still remember I got challan early in the morning going with my family. It was in 2012 at ~08:15 am. They pulled me over and said your speed is found on camera as 69km/h while the limit is 65 only.

    I told him it was 70 when I crossed the last under pass. And he said “the 70 speed was for that area specially”. This area has 65 limit.

    Stupid idiot arrogant silly laws which are for an average citizen like us.

    You drove the car with 100 speed in 60 limit zone with Black NCP SUV and I bet no one will dare to stop.

  2. Yes, There should be clear markings after a specific interval reminding people of the speed limit.

  3. humari qoum isi hai , k pehly traffic k asool ko follow nai krygi , aur jab baad main apni galtiyon ki wajha se zaida chalan khyegi to ehtijaj ka jhanda lehra k road pe aa jyegi .
    First of all ... , i m more interested in lane change challans ,and secondly it will not last longer :frowning: .. i just wish it last longer and challans should be atleast 5000 or above .

  4. and road speed limit should be clearly mentioned on the "Right Side of Road" so that it become visible for every driver. And it should be every after one km (just like in UAE) for everyone's convenience.
