To avoid road accidents in Hyderabad city, it is known that the government has recently brought in new rules regarding speed limits. Cars should travel at 60 kmph on major roads while autos & bikes can travel only at 50 kmph. The maximum allowed speed on colony roads is 30 kmph.
If you go faster, you will be fined. An official statement on the speed limit was released on Wednesday. However, the speed limit on all flyovers in Hyderabad will be 80 kmph. Until now, the maximum speed allowed on flyovers is only 40 kmph.
But vehicles often speed away on flyovers and get hefty challans imposed. That will change from now. At Hospitals and school zones, only 40 kmph is allowed. On all other roads, 60 kmph is allowed on all other roads. The officials will extensively educate the motorists and will start installing speed guns at a few locations in the city for fining the violators.
