Majority of the accidents are due to Driving Errors, not because of the high speeds. For high Speed only few accidents had occured.

Oh forgot to tell you, Today i had seen a crane picking up NHC and NHC was busted from the front. means one more accident i think at night.

When will those guys learn about the phrase "Better safe than Sorry."
I know that expressway, it is a good place to stretch out your legs. But it is not made for work out. A steady 90~100 gives better results than 50~150.

Correct me if i am wrong but have they not totally spoilt the drive from delhi to noida by constructing a pillar in the right most lane. Was in delhi 5 months ago so memory is sketchy about which side and lane.
I remember driving in July during very heavy rainfall and I was following another car. The construction site appeared suddenly and without warnig. I was lucky that i was 50mts behind the other car and noticed the car in front of me braing real hard and i was immediately able to take corrective action. Though on the way back to delhi i saw a Qualis parked on tope the construction material just before the pillar. God save us alll from this ludicrous style of construction. Have they take no lesson from the DMRC construction style which ensures convinience and safety.

It happens many times, One never knew what can come suddenly on expressways. Few days back, Doggies came infront me. Touch wood i saved them and my bumper was safe too.

Sometimes accidents do occur due to the fact that very few people (who don't have much sense of driving) runs their car (50-60 kmph) on the high speedy lane. Touchwood this thing never happened to me, because i drive safe but it happened to a skoda infront me which was about to hit M800.

Well..!! there is a check post 2 km before greater noida and that too on the curve and plenty of time to slow down on the curve. rest Piller? never seen. may be some construction work was going on and they had just put pillar shaped object on the road.

P.S. On asking the thulla that why was the check going on that day (In my 20 years of travelling on that road, this is the first time I've seen this happening) he very coolly replied "32 lakh ki gaadi kharidi hai sarkar ne, paisa kahin se to aayega hi naa"

But does that road have posted speed limits?
Also if you run away, do they chase you in Versa or on Foot?
In Noida if you run away, three policemen chase you on foot with bellies bouncing at 5kmph, and 3 climb on a moped and chase you at 15kmph.
You can't be caught unless you break down, or are laughing too hard to run away

I had heard of a Police Interceptor Vehicle in the US. How fast did the cop drive to catch you ?

How can a Versa cost 32 lakhs ?

They don't drive behind you to catch you. They stand in one place & measure your speed and radio your speed & car number to cops standing some distance down the road, who in turn stop you.

What we have here is more of a system akin to Speed Traps used abroad.

I doubt it can even with the Speed measuring equipment but I guess the policeman was ill-informed.

The cost would be around 8 lakhs. 24 lakhs would be Baksheesh

Sorry for the first pic, glared one. Accident on the same curve where santro was busted. but on the opposite side. mind ya its a good sharp turn and rammed hard and busted open from everywhere. santro's turn was a big wider but on the other hand the turn on which this esteem rammed is very sharp means just opp. to the place where santro rammed. Esteem RIP (Total Loss), dunno about the driver, but it seems driver must had saved. Today Press people were shooting videos of this esteem and expressway when i was clicking the pic.

Sorry no rear end, media people were shooting there and making documentry, I wanted to click the rear end but i don't want to come in media's limelight. So, havnt came out of my car.

Dunno if they survived. But it seems esteem turned upside down few times, really cant say. Impact point of view... he must had saved... but rolling point of view... 50-50.
