I don't think the people designing the road had accounted for people travelling at over 200 kph on this road when the speed limit is closer to 60kph. Driving in an enthusiastic manner is all well and good but reaching speeds where you are unable to react to a slight sweeping turn is just asking to get hurt.

I have been going through that stretch every Saturday for last 6 months every weekend. I was always doing less than 60kmph cos of speed limit so never experienced any unexpected turns or any discomfort. I think speed limit there is 50kmph. If someone over speed in city areas and that too almost the thrice of speed limit knowing very well the uncertainties Indian roads throw then I am sorry, I have no sympathies.

Totally agree with you on the no sympathies part. Pity, yes for their families but no sympathies. When one chooses to do 200kmph on a city road, you are voluntarily choosing to do the following:

1. Don't give a damn about the law.
2. Don't give a damn about the people sharing the road with them.
3. Don't give a damn about the fact that someone might be waiting at home.
4. Only thing you care about are your CHEAP THRILLS and nothing and no-one else.

I'm calling it CHEAP thrills is because people like these are CHEAP. Buying an expensive car or bike just needs money. Driving sensibly needs brain. One can make money but can't buy brains. If you have so much money then go rent a race track everyday and go over there but how dare you drive like this on city roads which is shared by so many other people. I'm just so thankful and happy that no one else was around at that time otherwise someone innocent might have been killed.

If anyone remembers the 1999 BMW Hit and Run case involving Sanjeev Nanda. 4 innocent people including 2 constables who were just doing their duty in the chilly winters of Delhi, died on the spot, has anyone thought after that year what about have happened to their families. And this Nanda got convicted and that too after 9 years of trials and that too for barely 2 years.

So ya no sympathy for people like these and dare I say good riddance.

The speed limit is 50 KMPH actually, across all underpasses on this stretch. And the road design is good, unless someone is doing 100 KMPH.
