No Speed limit in bangalore yet, come wolf... you must have not encountered these cops yet.

Last week I nearly escaped the cops near jaynagar. They were holding the speedgun to get the speed that vechiles were traveliing at.

Luckily I say all the vechiles slowing down so I too slowed down else I would have coughed 200.

when the cop said that they excuse the speeders upto 60 Kmph, He was very right to fine you before you carried on your speed run on mumbai roads...60 Kmph is a much safer speed and quite suited for good driving, In delhi also speeds between 60- 65 are standard cruising speeds for most users..The posted speed limits are 50 Though.
And mostly their machine is Accurate..So the benefit of doubt goes to the cop..! and you're lucky enough to go free in 200 rupees, In delhi the overspeed limit in multiplied by 100..So many a times drivers need to shell out more than a 1000 Rupees.

I had the unlucky experience of getting ticketed for overspeeding in jaynagar about 8 months back. The speed limit board was in some damn obscure corner of the road and I never noticed it until I double checked myself.(the stretch of rd before you take a angled right to jaynagar police station ) The cops fined me 300 Rs for doing 64km/hr in a 60km/hr zone. And this was around the 27th of the month, and in the afternoon. The cops were looking to make up their fine targets. Every bloody motorist was easily doing over 60 on that road. Many were shocked when they were told of the speed limit sign. I saw 2 or 3 girls standing next to their scooters getting booked.

As for speed detectors, I've seens lots of cars using valentine and escort units in the US but how useful are they in india? That was the first and last time I got booked for overspeeding. Spending 150-250 $ on this does not make sense.

get one for 30-50$ then, I dont think the police in India are employing sophisticated POP and Laser devices.

Beat this!

I have paid three speeding tickets here in Madras. Paid the government twice, once 150 bucks and the other time 400 bucks. And once 100 bucks to the cop. It was with a speed gun once where I was caught doing 76kmph in a 40kmph zone. The cop showed me the reading on the gun!

I found something interesting here on Australian highways, the on-coming vehicle warns you of a cop beforehand by flashing his headlights. Almost always, I have noticed that there is a cop ahead of you catching you for drunken-driving or over-speeding.

In India, we flash our head-lights very often and this may not work. But would be interesting to know if anyone has noticed this in other countries as well.

truck drivers do this in India, they warn of checkpoints to other truck drivers. If the truck papers are not in order, the chappie will stop untill another oncoming truck signals him all clear

In Malaysia, such system is very common.
