A new law has been passed by the Union government of India revising the maximum speed limits for four-wheelers and two-wheelers on country roads. With these changes, cars can now GO up to 120kmph on expressways against the earlier 100kmph. On the national highways, the speed limit for cars has been increased to 100kmph from the earlier limit of 80kmph.

Inside City roads, cars can now do 70kmph against the earlier limit of 50kmph. On the highways, two-wheelers can now do 80kmph from the earlier 60kmph limit. Meanwhile, inside the city, two-wheelers can now go up to 60kmph, which is an increase of 20kmph from the earlier limit.

Speaking of commercial vehicles, taxis can now clock a maximum speed of 100kmph as against the earlier limit of 80kmph on the expressway. As for highways, taxis can go up to 90kmph, which is about 10kmph more than the older limit. Inside city, taxis have to adhere to 70kmph just like the other cars.

It is also worth noting that these changes in maximum speed limit are only applicable to certain sections of the expressways and the highways. The speed restrictions on the curves and accident prone sections of the road remain unchanged. Similarly, there is no change in the area-specific speed limit enforced by the state agencies on roads and highways passing through towns and villages.
