like all newly married girls,
the Fusie wanted more when it was 100kmph on our way from Trichi in the night. Well, I gave in more and she bucked up in delight, shooting past 120KMPH.

You see, Only I get to ride her.!!!

Er, um... hate to ask you this, but do you wear protection?
Riding her at those speeds you need protection.
Please be responsible, always wear a seat-belt!!!!


(Sorry, couldn't resist this one! )

Avoid night driving particularly on the GST road at those very high speeds of 100-120 KMPH.

Actually Tindivanam to Chennai is heaven compared to the rest of GST Road. I can imagine how difficult it would be to restrain oneself in a Fusion! But yes, better to be safe than sorry especially at night.

v_s_natarajan and I (almost) met at a restaurant in Ulundurpettai. He was on his way to Tiruchhi and I was on my way to Munnar. We realized we almost bumped into each other after the trip

On the way back from Munnar, I had a halt at Tiruchchi. Started from Tiruchhi at 4:45 pm and was at home in Chennai at 9:45 pm.

I lost one of my closest friends in a road accident near Madurantakam, which falls in Tindivanam-Chennai segment. I was there to the police station to get the paper work completed, on daily basis for a week from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. Believe me or not, every morning for that complete week there is a fresh case of fatal accidents.

I was really shocked, how come the accidents happen in that excellent road separated by a median. The cops says drivers are topping up their speed once they reach that stretch & Tindivanam-Tamabaram segment is where the majority of accidents occur during nights. The highway department and patrol police are equipped to clear the vehicles involved in accident in no time & the trace of the accident itself will not be there.

Just look at the medians between Tindivanam-Tambaram, you can notice the scars in the medians indicating that some vehicle has hit it.

I was, of course, only referring to the road itself and not the people who drive. You're right about people stepping up their speeds on this section. Most seem to get very excited about great stretches of roads and / or other cars & start speeding.

NH209: Palani to Dindigul - I happened to overtake a Ford Ikon 1.8D doing 135. There was no intention of a race. He was doing around 100 and I was maintaining 135 for a stretch and just happened to overtake him. You should have seen the vengeance with which he came after me and overtook me! Sad but true.
