Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway: Mobile speed radars book 174 cases for overspeeding

1 min read

Mysuru: As many as 174 cases of over-speeding have been booked on the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway after the mobile speed radar guns were introduced following complaints of repeated incidents of accidents on the stretch, early this week.

ADGP (Traffic and Road Safety) Alok Kumar tweeted that in the last two days, 137 persons were booked for lane discipline, 47 fined for riding without helmets, 81 persons were booked for driving without seat belt and 51 cases have been booked for other violations.

It may be recalled here that the Ramnagar police introduced radar vehicles – on Monday – to check vehicles exceeding speed limit of 100 kmph on the Expressway.

More than 500 accidents and fatalities have been reported on the stretch since it was thrown open to public in March. Although it is the first access-controlled Expressway – built at a cost of 8,408 cr – in South India, the 119-km stretch of Expressway has become a headache for the Highway authorities. While overspeeding could be the reason behind the accidents, lack of safety measures to check the accidents too have contributed to the deaths, observe people here. Besides, the wired mesh that has been wrapped on either side of the road to prevent people from nearby villages from accidentally entering the highway has been damaged, leading to accidents.
