HYDERABAD:  The state government has fixed speed limit for vehicles moving on various roads. The maximum speed allowed on state highways is 80 km, according to orders issued by the departments of transport and roads & buildings here on Friday.

The Government Order was issued in compliance with a Supreme Court’s directive. The apex court had constituted a committee on road safety in 2014. The committee made certain recommendations to states for implementation of measures for road safety. One of the recommendations is issuance of a notification fixing speed limits for driving on national and state highways, and fixing of signage boards.
