Here is the smashed Getz, there were 3 boys and a girl traveling in this car at 4 A.M. My friend was not able to take the snap of the Sumo and the Indica as it was cleared by 6 A.M. Thank god people survived with some minor and major injuries and there was no issue for any once life till 5:30 A.M.

hope it wasn't a getz crdi - given the potential under those engines, it could have been really bad

Reach home alive instead of an ambulance. Sometimes the most obvious is never thought off.
It is a very good option and if they install a SPEED CAMERA, (like the one I saw in some traffic signal in Bangalore) it could prevent mad driving on this road and may reduce the causalities

The Speed camera is not the solution, and it is in the wrong spot. The danger zone (on both sides) is the sharp curve between Dell & the U-turn. They need to cut the curvature of that section - and reduce speeds.

I dont think there are speed guns/cameras at signals.
They are normal cameras to detect violations.

But Police now have "interceptor" vehicles fitted with radars to check over speeding.
Saw them couple of times on IRR, Once on Devanahalli road(NH7) but havent seen them for a while.

Have you guys noticed something in IRR? They have put the reflectors in the curves which is good thing.

for that road, it would be about 50 for cars, max 60. buses & heavy vehicles - 40.

Hey guy there is a major accident in the Inner ring road, 5 cars back to back collided. Be careful if you are taking way.

Finally IRR gets a proper drainage system for the rain water to get off the road and also a New layer of tar mat. Now from Ejipura to Old Airport RD flyover you can just take the car / Bike flat out, No speed breakers & no pot holes, the road is just flat as track. Beware of those tricky curves if you are taking close one.

Still they have not done a real good job at Ejipura signal (when u go from Old Airport RD flyover to Ejipura ) the rain water is getting collected at one corner of the road, they need to work on that part.

I am sure once the Old Airport RD flyover to Ejipura lane gets its new layer the speed breakers will be back.

Speed breakers have come up overnight, at the top of the hill on the inner ring road (aircraft view point / U turn junction). I was taken a bit unawares this morning. Could not turn back to see if the warning boards were in place.

Dear all, please take care while approaching this junction.
