Places to watch out in Delhi:

1. Rajouri Garden Flyover (as mentioned above)*
2. Rajouri Garden Flyover (opposite side, just before Gurudwara) have seen there only once.
3. Flyover on Ring Road From (Punjabi Bagh to Brittania) have seen there only once.*
4. On the road that goes from Karol Bagh to Dhaula Kuan
5.Shankar Road (Just before Mandir Marg)
6. Talkatora Road (from Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital to Red Cross Road)*

* I have been caught for over-speeding at these places.
There are quite a few others, like -
1. Rajghat stretch
2. Wazirabad to GTK bypass
3. GTK Bypass to Narela (Hry Border)
4. DND Toll Road
5. ITO to Sarai Kale Khan
6. Near Apollo Hospital (Mathura Road)
7. IIT-D to Chirag Delhi
8. Mehrauli to Saket
9. Dhaula Kuan to Naraina stretch
10. Dhaula Kuan to Karol Bagh Ridge Road (I think this has been posted earlier as well).
11. Diplomatic enclave
12. On the Ring Road just before Coffee Home (opposite to Hyatt Hotel)
.
.
.
etc.

Fortunately, I have never been caught for speeding as I drive within the speed limits.

Interceptors are now a common sight everywhere in India. In Goa the Qualis and Esteem were used as Interceptors.

Add to that the stretch on the Outer Ring Road from Mukarba Flyover to Wazirabad.
They keep on changing their place between the stretch and catch you on both sides of the road.

I have been fined once in Delhi and got fined about 6 months ago on the Devnahalli Airport road doing 93 in the 80 zone. What impressed me in Bangalore was the policeman had a blackberry through which he entered the details of my vehicle on to the central database and a thermal printer attached to a Pocket PC printed out the Challan.

@Vinaydas: Rules are there for a purpose. We all knowing as well as unknowingly break many a rules everyday, but doesn't mean they should be scrapped. Btw how many times would you break speedlimits while driving in US/UK/Europe just like you do here in India. Is it because we Indians tend to only understand the language of the stick?

P.S: Sppedlimit on a US Freeway is only 55KMPH, Motorways in UK/France have only 70mph/100kmph speedlimit even though they have much better infrastructure than us and by that standard 80-100kmph for Indian highways is PRETTY GOOD.
SPEED LIMIT in the US is 55 MPH NOT Kmph! Huge difference!

I believe it's 55mph on state highways and 60-70mph (majority have a 65mph limit) on interstate highways depending on the state/city/county.
