Guys, Dont you ever feel saying that you have done more than twice and thrice the allowed speed limit on public roads on a public forum is like saying in other words 'I plead guilty, Punish me.'? I dont get it, Many people black out their number plates when they post pictures, but have no problem in posting a picture of them speeding. It is illegal to do speeds above the speed limits which is mostly 80kmph for cars.
It is absolute lunacy to drive in excess of 160kmph and then take pictures of it by yourself. Its even dangerous to let someone put the camera in front of you to take the picture none the less. And then some of you guys are fiddling with a cell phone or camera to take a picture and driving at the same time. See no one is going to say you did not do it. Its not such a big feat even, Remember always- Anyone with a heavy foot can speed and hit the limiter, But its how fast you are able to stop that counts,Always!
One bad moment and it could change your whole life for ever.
Today I was doing around 55kmph in my Alto on the way back home after work, At that time three cats, one after the other ran across. I braked hard, The car was having the stock Apollo tyres and the car took more than 35 meters to stop. I saw one of the cats roll on the road and somehow it jumped up and ran away. I dont know whether I ran over it, But I guess I hit it. If it were a kid or a person. I dont want to even dream of it.
I almost never do more than 80kmph these days in my Alto. Its getting more and more risky.
And I dont think anyone said here that you need evidence to state your claim. So please stop fiddling with the camera at least while doing serious speeds on public roads which is illegal and an offence in the first place, Its a request.
We dont have any more open roads like before and with so many people driving crazy all at once, Its better to stick to reasonable speeds.
If at all you want to drive pedal to the metal, Then find a closed circuit or an air strip like the one in Jakkur in Bangalore. Use a helmet even in a car and buckle up while at it as well.
I posted most of my high speed runs at rallies and races. I used to speed on public roads more than 15 years back and now I realize that it was stupid of me and is no more safe to do. So I've decided not to do in excess of 100kmph even in an emergency. Simple reason is that there is too much chaotic traffic now than back in the days.
