Speed limit slab for vehicles
The maximum speed limit on four-lane roads for non-transport motor vehicles with a capacity of up to eight passengers is 100 KMPH, according to speed capping. On national and state highways, however, these cars are not permitted to exceed the 70 KMPH speed limit.
Roads within municipal districts have the maximum speed limits, which implies that all cars on these roads must go at the lowest possible rates. On these highways, passenger vehicles cannot exceed 60 kilometers per hour, while cargo vehicles must go at 40 kilometers per hour.
Within municipal areas, two-wheelers must not exceed a speed of 50 KMPH, while three-wheelers must only go at a speed of 40 KMPH.
Transport motor vehicles carrying more than eight passengers are limited to 80 kilometers per hour on four-lane highways, 70 kilometers per hour on national and provincial highways, and 60 kilometers per hour on municipal roads.
Furthermore, medium and heavy motor vehicles carrying more than nine passengers are not permitted to travel faster than 80 kilometers per hour on a four-lane highway, 70 kilometers per hour on national and state highways, and 60 kilometers per hour on municipal roads.
On four-lane highways, the maximum speed restriction for goods-carrying vehicles is 70 km/h, 60 km/h on national and state highways, and 40 km/h on municipal roads.
On four lanes, two-wheelers can drive the fastest, but only up to 80 KMPH on national and state highways, and up to 60 KMPH on interstates. On four-lane roads and other highways, three-wheelers are limited to a top speed of 50 KMPH.
