The fine for speeding on the Mumbai-Pune expressway has been doubled.

The fine for speeding on the Mumbai-Pune expressway has been doubled. Now, if you’re caught speeding on the e-way, be prepared to shell out a fine of Rs. 2,000.

The revised penalty seems to have come into effect following the implementation of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act 2019. Under the new law, compounding fees for traffic offences have been hiked with the aim to ensure discipline among road users.

The speed limit for light motor vehicles (LMVs) and heavy vehicles is 100 km/h and 80 km/h, respectively. However, on accident-prone stretches of the highway, all vehicles have to adhere to a lower speed limit.

Besides speeding, the authorities have also been cracking down errant drivers to enforce lane discipline.
