Very Soon, Speed limits for all Delhi roads will be reviewed by city administration and police. The move follows traffic police faced flak for improvements in the speed limit adjusted in their sensor-based cameras installed at several intersections and at the maximum permitted limit. On NH24 (now NH9), the signs tell us that the speed limit is 70 km/h, however, the traffic police have configured their machines with a limit of 50 km/h which has recently been installed on highways. This occurs days after the traffic controller faces flak for speed limit variations adjusted in its sensor-based cameras, recently mounted at different intersections and roads and with the actual allowed limit.
Further to add, signboards say the speed limit is 70 kmph on NH24 (now NH-9). However, the transport system, which has recently set up highway speed-detection cameras for a speed limit of 50 kmph, has adjusted its equipment. As a result, as many as 1.4 lakh challan has been deterred between the Millennium Park and the Ghazipur since August by the traffic police.
For approximately 30 years, road experts have endorsed this authority. Such an authority would provide a single uniform platform now for coordination, draft regulations and grievance mechanism between various agencies. As a result, its scope may go beyond speed limit differences, calibration problems and cab aggregator regulations,
