Checking is very consistent.
I almost see them on every weekend.

I'm not sure about weekdays.

Yeah, it is a good decision considering cabs.

On the positive side, I'm able to achieve good mileage

The ORR provides good connectivity to the airport no doubt and one can circumvent the annoying city traffic to commute through this way from one corner to the other. I just hope this wouldn't venture out to go close to the Bangalore-Mysore highway in the future as it is on its way to become the future corridor of IT industry. Having speed limits restricted to 100 kmph is quite decent and would be enough to keep oneself safe but, a lineance of atleast + or - 10 Kmph should be considered while throwing a fine on the individual as none of the odometers read the exact same way in practical scenarios.

So the speed limit increased to 105km/hr

We have a 5km/hr buffer for people drive at 100km/hr, previously it was very difficult to maintain 100 km/hr

 

110km/hr would be more perfect

My daily commute is on ORR.
I used to cruise at 110 km/hr

I have around 4500/- pending challans.:o

It was too late before I realized the speed limit is 100 km/hr

 

One of my friend has 6k pending, It gave him heart ache.
Please stick to speed limits on ORR.

In my opinion ORR is good till 120km/hr

Is it possible to charge multiple times on a same day?


It can be an issue, If the vehicle is fined at the same location.

In the above picture, he is clearly charged at different locations.

Still 10k is too high.
100 km/hr without any buffer is worrying me.
It is time to drive at 80/90 km/hr.

I used to drive on the edge of the speed limit 95~100 km/hr

Under any circumstances do not cross 100 kmph speed as there are speed guns around ORR. They charge 1400 + taxes even for 102 kmph.

 

Yeah,

One of our member is charged for 101km/hr.

Checking is consistent, keeping an eye on the speedometer is a must.

 

90km/hr is the safe speed I guess.

I think now they have added a buffer of 5 kmph , have a seen a picture where it shows a speed limit of 105 kmph

 

No, I think.

I have uploaded one picture with 105km/hr speed limit.

But recently one our member was charged for driving at 102 km/hr.

Turning on your cruise mode after setting it between 90 and 95 kmph is the best thing to do when on ORR :)

      Roadtrips... long drives... holiday to the hills driving our car, gives a high to all the drivers. Driving to the beaches or to the unexplored hills with our family or friends is an all-time favorite activity. Driving is fun, but a single error makes it a disaster.
       
      All drivers know the feeling - a frightening realization behind the wheel of the car when a wave of drowsiness hits, that you may be too tired to go on. A blink of an eye is all it takes for one to end up trapped inside a toppled car or a badly mangled car in the opposite lane.
       
      20% of the accidents on Indian Highways are caused by driver fatigue says a survey. It all happens in seconds, as said above, in a blink of an eye. Drowsiness is extremely dangerous.
       
      Pushing yourself beyond the limits, just to make it on time or just to boast to your friends of your achievements of "non-stop 800kms drive" is the last thing you would want to do.  

      You Can’t Afford to Drive on Through Fatigue
       
      Fatigue is a serious concern for everyone on the road. Feeling sleepy makes a driver, less attentive, and affects the driver’s ability to make quick decisions. You need to be able to navigate, merge safely, respond to unpredictable drivers, accidents, potholes or even the sudden appearance of a cattle. 
       
      Delayed reaction time can mean the difference between life and death – for you, or another person on the road. A tired mind also has more trouble concentrating, making it difficult to judge speed and distance. 
       
      Entering a trance-like state while driving is a trait we notice quite often while driving on highways at a constant speed, at constant cabin temperature. This is known as Highway Hypnosis. Becoming attuned to your body and its need for rest and sleep will make you a safer driver.
       
      Warning Signals that It’s Time to Get Off the Road
       
      Driving requires your undivided attention. If you notice one or more of these signs, it is time to get off the wheel and rest.
       
      Frequent yawning & fidgeting   
      Frequent lane changes without knowing  
      Tailgating  
      Erratic Braking  
      Inconsistent speed  
      Delayed reaction time  
      Missing on turns and signboards  
      Missing to check on ORVMs IRVMs  
      Missing to use indicators   
      Rolling down the window for fresh air  
      Blurred vision or frequent blinking  
      5 Tips to Combat Fatigue
       
      1. Surveys show that a short nap can increase alertness and significantly lower the risk of driver fatigue. Take a short twenty-minute nap, preferably before you become too sleepy.
       
      2. Avoid medications that may induce drowsiness. 
       
      3. Eat a healthy and balanced meal at regular intervals. Lack of proper food leads to a drop in blood sugar levels which makes us drowsy. Also, heavy meals make us lazy and sluggish increasing the drowsiness. 
       
      4. Coffee, smoking, turning up the volume on the radio and fresh air only work for short periods of time. Do not rely on them to keep you alert. (Personal experience, play those songs that give you a good feeling. Not too loud and not too much music. Play it at a medium volume, this will help you cruise at a constant speed making you feel attentive.) 
       
      5. Stay hydrated and also keep switching between ‘recirculating’ and ‘fresh-air’ modes on the air-con. A change in temperature helps you stay more alert. (Personal experience, roll down the window and allow fresh air and those traffic sound to enter the cabin. Hearing those makes us attentive and lets us drive till we find a good tree to rest under.)

      Above all, never forget to take naps at regular intervals. It's not only beneficial to you, but also to your car, its engine, and tires.  If you are really tired, never attempt to drive beyond the limits. It's your maturity and safe driving habits that ultimately call you a good driver, not your "800kms non-stop achievements".

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in the forum.
      As my status suggest, i'm newbie here☺️
      My profile;
      Total experience behind wheels: less than 1 year
      Total kms traveled: below 8k (with only 1 long drive ~1600kms i.e; Hyd-Pune-Mumbai-Aurangabad-Nanded-Hyd in Sep 2017)
      Car owned: Baleno petrol manual transmission.
      Travellers: Me, better half, 2 kids (10Y, and 5Y)
       
      Before posting as a new topic, i browsed all the topics for the topic to start.
      My intention is to take expert tips from all expert guys like you.
       
      Kindly bear with me if you find these queries childish, as i can't change stepney by myself!
       
      1. During ascending on ghat road (which i observed on Lonavala ghat road), i drive in 2nd gear. At the hair pin curve, applied full accelarotor, as i felt my vehicle may not move further. Scary experience. Is it normal?
      Somebody suggest me to use 1st gear for those ascending hair pin curve...
       
      2. I have read lot of experience of driving in Wayanad. With my above experience can I hit the road? Planning this October holidays after getting 3rd service done.
      My wife drive well if the roads are well mainatained like NH44. 
       
      3. Does Nitrogen gas really helps for better maintenance of the tyres?
       
      I will continue post my queries here in this forum, if i get some response as I believe in learning is continuous process until you die!
      Note: I start exploring the forum very recently. Had i read all the post before my unplanned tour to Mumbai, i would never taken the route of NH65 especially from Omerga to Sholapur😩.
       
      Thank you for your time and valuable inputs.
