Speed Limit on Expressway: If you are also fond of filling cars and bikes, then this news will definitely make you happy. Yes, in the coming time, there is going to be a stamp on increasing the speed limit on expressways and national highways. Now the day is not far when you will get to hear the sound of musical instruments in the form of horns of vehicles. In this regard, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the proposal to increase the maximum speed limit of vehicles on expressways and highways will be discussed in the meeting of Transport Development Council (TDC) in Bengaluru this week.
What will be the new speed limit!
At present, the maximum speed limit for cars on the expressway is 100 km per hour by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. On the other hand, for commercial vehicles, this limit is 80 km per hour. In the coming time, the speed limit of cars can be increased to 120 kmph. Similarly, for commercial vehicles, it can increase from 80 to 100 kmph.
Apart from this, the central government is considering
making it mandatory for vehicle companies to have at least six ‘airbags’ in eight-seat vehicles from October. Giving information, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said that this step is being taken for the safety of passengers in private vehicles. In the year 2022 itself, it was said by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways that it has been decided to amend the Central Motor Vehicles Act-1989 for the safety of passengers.
Keeping in mind the safety of the driver and the passengers, the government is planning to make the rear seat ‘seat belt alarm’ system mandatory for the vehicle manufacturers. At present, vehicle manufacturers are required to provide seat belt ‘reminders’ only for passengers sitting in the front seat. In the coming times, seat belts will also be required for the passengers sitting behind, failing which the alarm will sound.
