"Our roads are not designed to take speed of imported buses, cars and bikes"

Visakhapatnam sources have stated that the recent tragic death of P. Nishith, son of Minister P. Narayana, in a car accident in Hyderabad has raised several questions. Almost all the roads in India are designed to take vehicle speeds of not more than 100 km per hour and the use of imported buses, cars and bikes is growing in the country and when youngsters are behind the wheel, the situation can well be imagined.

Meanwhile Deputy Transport Commissioner S. Venkateswara Rao told "Transport Department is planning to approach manufacturers of imported buses like Scania, Volvo and Benz to restrict the speed of their vehicles sold in India. These vehicles have a speed regulation mechanism and it can be easily altered at the manufacturer level".

Sources have stated that the manufacturer has to lower the upper limit and issue a certificate to the buyer that the speed of the bus has been regulated as per the prescribed norms. The speed would be measured with speed guns installed at strategic points on the outskirts of the city.
