In order to increase road safety, the Govt. of India is ramping up the number of speed cameras on roads across the nation.

RadarBot is a very handy app, especially if you plan on driving on highways for an extended period of time. With speed cameras everywhere, you never know when your vehicle is being monitored. RadarBot notifies you every time there is a speed camera in your vicinity. While it is not faultless, the app works fine most of the time. It alerts you every time you break the permissible speed limit and produces a sound when there’s a camera nearby. For bike riders, the app offers vibrational alerts, which means you don’t have to pull your phone out of your pocket or mount it on your bike’s console.
Use Cruise Control
Most cars come with a ‘cruise control’ mode which limits your speed to a certain number and does not go beyond that. Ideally meant for highway driving, cruise control lets you take your foot off the accelerator, which means you won’t accidentally over speed on extended empty patches of the highway. It doesn’t take a long time to familiarise yourself to cruise control, and it comes in very handy in the long run.
Watch out for signboards
The speed limit depends on the kind of road and the region you are in. Luckily, every major road has a speed limit sign board that lets you know the permissible speed for driving. It is also a good idea to keep yourself updated about the different road signs and what they mean. The speed limit sign is something that every driver recognises. Some roads also have a digital sign board that scans your vehicle‘s speed and displays an estimated velocity. Keep an eye out for these signs and make sure you adjust the speed of your vehicle accordingly.
Use Speed Camera Radar
Like RadarBot, Speed Camera Radar is another great app to get notified about any speed cameras while you’re diving. Apart from alerting you of any static, ambush, or traffic light cameras in your vicinity, this app also notifies you about any road hazards. Once you install the app on your device, make sure you update the database routinely so you don’t miss out on any camera.
