    Default Speeding on Yamuna Expressway: 21,527 drivers may lose their licence

    Are you speeding on Yamuna Expressway? Beware: Your license will be suspended for speeding and violations.

    The transport department of Gautam Budh Nagar has listed 21,527 drivers violating the speed norms thrice or more between 1st of April to 4th of July on the Yamuna Expressway.

    To bring down the road accidents and violations, the district administration and the transport department had joined to take necessary actions and also recommended the respective authorities to suspend their license.

    Every vehicle's speed will be recorded by a software installed at the Jewar Toll Plaza. 100 kmph is the speed limit for the small & medium vehicles. 60 kmph for heavy vehicles.

    It was shocking to the district administrations where over 1.3 lakh speeding offenses had been recorded in the last two months. 1,33,590 in June and 1,72,000 in May. On average more than 5,000 offenses per day.

    Speaking on this, Mr. BN Singh, District Magistrate, Gautam Budh Nagar says, “For the first two offences, we fine the vehicle owner. However, for a third violation, we initiate cancellation of driving licences under the Motor Vehicles Act. To deal with vehicles from outside UP, we will take the help of the ARTO department and the police of the state concerned to track the owner of the offending vehicle and fine them.

    In May, a total of 1,72,000 violations were recorded whereas in June, a total of 1,35,590 violations were recorded, which shows a dip of 23% in one month. Similarly, a total of 76 accidents in April, 65 accidents in May and 61 accidents in June were registered on the expressway, showing a decreasing trend in the number of accidents."

    I have seen people testing their car's top speed there..150-200 kmph of speeds are usual thing.

    May be it's a desperate measure as a result of the widely circulated video recording of a accident involving a Porsche and a Swift Dezire.

    That accident wasn't on the Yamuna Expressway.

    Also a vehicle doesn't have a driving licence. It has an RC!

    If they have caught a vehicle speeding 3 times, how do they know it was the same driver?

    Last Monday, I and my wife were on our way to dropping her at office.. Noida Greater Noida Expressway was jam packed towards Sec 135.. It is never this packed usually! I immediately told my wife that this traffic is due to some accident.. after filtering through about 1km in the heavy traffic, We noticed there was a pileup of 5 cars.. Wondering what were they doing driving so close to each other.. Even on this expressway, the so called racers test their cars limit (I am no exception - Done once to test my Ninja).. I can imagine on the Yamuna Expressway..

    But like at what @The Monk has pointed out, how will they find out if the drivers weren't the same.. It will be the owner of the car who will be penalized..

    "100 kmph is the speed limit for the small & medium vehicles. 60 kmph for heavy vehicles."

    These things will happen only in India ! That too in a express highway !

    They will probably hold the owner responsible to get the drivers details from the owner. If not impound the car ?!
    Even regular speed cam take pics and send the receipt to the registered owners address(and posted online) and he is responsible for clearing it (at least that's how it works here in Hyderabad)
    And driving license is provided by the state but valid across India. Not sure if they have a centralized database.. so it is very much possible that one person has a license from a different state or maybe even multiple licenses (from different states).
    Until these things are going to be centralized, it will be difficult to implement a proper mechanism to penalize folks. Apart from that we all know how well these 'rules' are enforced (at the whims and fancies of the agencies )

    Hi All,
    This might be a silly question, but still i wanted to discuss it here.
    What about night driving, are these speed camera compatible in night?
