As the winter season kicks in, the risk of accidents due to dense fog and mist increases on many roads and highways. Numerous videos surface every year showing vehicles colliding with each other due to high-speed driving in foggy conditions. In an effort to prioritize the safety of people, the government has made changes to the speed limit rules on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, Yamuna Expressway, and elevated roads starting from December 15th. Those unaware of these rules may end up getting fined, as evidenced by the 468 fines issued by the police on the very first day of implementation.

The 165-kilometer long Yamuna Expressway, connecting Agra to Greater Noida, experiences intensified fog during the winter season, leading to an increase in accidents caused by vehicles driving at high speeds. In light of this, the government has enforced new speed limit rules, reducing the maximum speed for light vehicles from 100 kmph to 80 kmph, and for heavy vehicles to 60 kmph.

Violating these rules will result in a fine of Rs. 2000, applicable from December 15th to February 15th and monitored by traffic police through CCTV cameras installed on expressways and highways. The captured vehicle numbers are used to track down the owners and send fines to their addresses. Failure to pay the fines may lead to the cancellation of the driver’s license.

It is essential for everyone to adhere to these new speed limit rules and prioritize safety while driving, especially in foggy weather conditions. The implementation of these rules is a necessary step towards preventing accidents and ensuring the safety of commuters on these expressways and highways.
