Not sure who that is. It has stock tires with wheel caps. Had a Pio basic model HU (2100 UB), JBL Ovals at the back (parcel tray). thats all i could remember.

Fair chance that the car might be used by a family member. lets wait and see

Mi10, ElantraGT - It seems you blokes are the "official" spotters this side of the river.

We can get you blessed by the D-nightdress (aka - nitrous)

EDIT : Guys who take OMR, be on the lookout for cops with speedguns.

The "legal" limit is 40Km/Hr (they got to be kidding...!)
Its got to do something with extending the city limit.

300/- is the fine, will given receipt and all. My bro got nabbed for doing 79Km/Hr on Sunday 1:00 pm, there was not even a dog on the road so got the full view and got nabbed.

Fountainheader's ? I think the company & color matches, but IIRC he went for a Zxi. Not sure.

Yep, saw a speed-limit sign suddenly popup (near SRP tools I think), which signals their intention to start fining for speed-limit violation.

Nope, not Anil's. His ride is much more enterprising to see (and hear!!)

on Speedgun: usually they (interceptor vechile) hide behind the bushes infront of the NIFT centre. I have been caught twice (on bike) there for speeding over 40 km. Need to be careful in that strech.

^^ Another spot is in front of the CTS building right after the bridge!

I have always been lucky to escape the interceptor. Some share auto/bus would slow me down right before the bridge giving me enough time to spot the white uniform!

Thanks for the warning; I do some speeds on 2 wheels that cannot be documented here in the early hours on this stretch. Now that you've told, I'll try restricting myself max to NHAI limits.

Yup that is a "known" spot.
My point is the epidemic is spreading further down OMR.
Inside the "toll" road

Same here bro, I do 60Km/Hr atleast (usually at my 2pm time there is not much traffic).

Night I don't think they really bother.
Sadly its not really a push for safer roads rather a push to get their target "quota" filled.
All reasons given are basically BS.

If you wanna have a blast, nothing like the Tidel stretch in the early morning hours, say 2 or 3 AM. Though I work in Alwarpet, and have a 6 KM route to reach home through Mylapore> Mandaveli > Satya Studio, I go all the way around to mount road (which again is a blast at 3 AM), Saidapet > Raj Bhavan > Madhya Kailash > Tidel Park > Thiruvanmiyur > Besant Nagar

Boy, this thread has become the same as the other meets thread - where we discuss everything except meets!! Maybe we should have a gossip / chit-chat thread!!

We'll have a quick meet on sunday. Guess we should call it a weekly meet.
Hope to see the new Ford and Fiat additions to the gang.

Why dont we have these meets at some place where we can sit and talk? Standing or leaning back on cars for hours is not exactly something I look forward to

Marina beach? We can touch Barista on the way back. Or any place else?
