Cars crossing Yamuna Expressway in under 99 mins to be fined

The authorities will set up time booths on the Jewar and Agra portions of the expressway to monitor the time taken by vehicles using the expressway.

To control the number of accidents happening on the Yamuna Expressway due to over-speeding, the authorities have implemented a new rule. Cars will have to complete the journey on the expressway in more than 99 minutes, while heavy vehicles will have to take more than 124 minutes. Vehicles completing the journey before the stipulated time will be fined via an online challan.

The authorities will set up time booths on the Jewar and Agra portions of the expressway to monitor the time taken by vehicles using the expressway. Earlier, the authorities used to check the amount of time taken by a vehicle between two toll booths, to determine if it was speeding.

Apart from the new rule, the Yamuna Expressway is also set to get boom barriers. Authorities also plan to install statues of cars that have met with accidents to try and deter drivers from over-speeding.

The length of the Yamuna Expressway is 165 km. The maximum speed that cars are allowed to touch on the road is 100 km/h.
