    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

      good initiative, but how will police verify the reports filed by citizens...just photographic evidence is not enough. but in some cases it will surely help. somebody forward this to pune traffic police also.

        This might become huge success, how often we see brazen violation of traffic rules and grin our-self, now we can do something about it.

            The biggest problem in Bangalore is the ridiculous speed limits for 2-wheelers - with limits of just 50 on outer ring road (on its fastest stretches) things get really ridiculous. Then the same limit also exists on tiny congested interior roads where its dangerous to cross 30. Atleast on ORR speed limits for bikers should be raised to 70. The problem with low speed limits on these roads is if someone ever tries to maintain low speeds (I did an experiment of that sort), the road becomes extremely dangerous, with everyone else zipping past at illegally high speeds.

              ROTFL!!! Then I hope you didn't know that this entire country has speed limit for two-wheeler of about 50 Kmph

              May be NICE is excluded, not sure again. This means, even the legendary, Nelamangala - Hassan, Tumkur - Davangere - Hubli - Dharwad, Pokran - Jaisalmer, Kishengarh - Jaipur has a speed limit of 50 Kmph including Hayabusa, R1, S1000RR, RTR & even TVS 50

                Does this extend to NH as well?? or is it restricted to city limits only..

                BTW, nice initiation by the Bangalore Traffic police.
                Wonder what actions will be taken against the police themselves if they break the Law.. I have seen multiple times that the Mamus in kolkata are riding without Helmet, or riding as well as talking over the phone, whick is neatly packed under the helmet.

                  But I've seen 60 kmph limits on National Highways and even some particular sections of the State Highways. The speed limit is reduced to 50 in some particular areas where there is usually high traffic or people frequently crossing the roads, atleast that's what I've seen.

                    I've seen 100 too Those are applicable for cars & cars only. We conveniently take that it's applicable for bikers too

                    Ever seen NP truck? Next time notice there's a speed limit mentioned at the side of the truck as "Speed Limit 50 Kmph" This means no matter where the truck is driven in the country, the speed limit is just 50 Kmph.

                      Trucks with 50 km/h limit makes sense but 50 km/h for a motorcycle that too on a highway? Seriously, things here are f***** up than I thought it was.

                          You need to ride on Yamuna Expressway. Speed-limit for bikes there is 80 kmph (100 for cars). Even the road leading to YEW via Noida has a 80 kmph speed limit for bikes (100 for cars). These speed limits are clearly mentioned here AND these places are also in India.

                          I have ridden in Delhi/NCR only for 1 evening and 1 morning and I found plenty of roads with 70/80kmph speed limit (for bikes) wherever I went. But that was maybe because SunilG told me what roads to take .

                            there are certainly some places in india with high or good enough speed limits, just as antz mentioned.

                            on mumbai pune expressway i guess the speed limit is 80 kmph for all vehicles, that means trucks also have a speed limit of 80 kmph, ofcourse two-wheelers arenot allowed except one very small section.

                            but yes, at most of the places in india, speed limit for two-wheelrs is in the range of 40-60 kmph. hell 5th gear of my puny P150 engages at 60 kmph....seems like manufacturer has produced an illegal bike and sold off to me....ha ha

                              Shoots!!! Are you sure the speed for motorcycles is 80 Kmph? If you've any pics from the YEW stating the speed limit for motorcycles, pls post here.

                              There's no 60, it's only 50 Kmph & within the city it keeps varying & till date I haven't seen anything above 40 Kmph.
