Are the Traffic Police Overdoing the Speed Limits in City?

The union ministry of road transport and Highway has fixed 70 kmph as the speed limit for vehicles with less than eight seats, 50 kmph for autos, and 60 kmph for bikes in cities. However, not all states seem to be following the rules set by them, and surely Telangana is one such state. In what is rather disgusting, the speed limit at some places in the city is as low as 30 kmph.


While the youngsters don’t seem to be particularly affected by such rules, other law-abiding citizens often get into trouble if they unknowingly cross the speed limits. They are the ones who pay the challans.


However, it looks like the GHMC has no role to play when it comes to deciding the challan rates and speed limits. According to one anonymous GHMC employee, the GHMC does not fix the speed limits and simply follows the guidelines of traffic police. They simply comply with what the traffic police decide, and the GHMC bears the cost involved.


Meanwhile, it looks like the challan amount goes to the traffic police, and many allege that the police have specific targets to complete, and hence they play with ordinary citizens. According to recently appointed ACP Traffic official, AV Ranganath, the states have the freedom to make amendments when necessary. He adds that they consult engineers to suggest the speed limit for a particular make of vehicle. He shares that they fix varying limits for different vehicles.
