AHMEDABAD: Speed thrills, but it also kills! goes an oft quoted road accident adage. For SP Ring Road, this seems to be the new normal. A research carried out with Charutar Vidya Mandal’s BVM engineering college has pointed out that on an average mean speeds on the ring road are anywhere between 49kmph and 44kmph, while the maximum peak speeds were registered between 80kmph and 73kmph for vehicles.
“Apart from the unusual land-use pattern, the roundabouts and intersections on SP Ring Road were most vulnerable to accidents,” said professor A A Amin. He added that the maximum accidents took place in the month of October.
