Delhi Speed Limit – Too low too slow.

I bang my head and twinkle my toes every time i am returning back to the city from somewhere where i have been to in my car. I just got back from Chandigarh last Sunday. Covered 220 Km’s in less than 3 hours and the remaining 40 to Defence Colony from the Boarded took me almost 1.5 hours…. a sheer waste of time!

Look at the picture below, this is just after i entered the border, and i was going so slow that i could take out my phone and start taking snaps. Nice wide road, almost no traffic….and now look at my speedometer…ya sad right..?

I try and visit the place as often as i can. The additional lure being that it is only 250 Kms away from Delhi or 200 from the Boarder an thus easily drivable  in 4-6 hours depending on how fast you go. I look for the smallet of reasons to jump in and hit the highway! A normal weekend would involve lazing around , and nothing else. Lots of Beer and sunshine in the winters to just Beer in the summers 🙂 , lots of food, 3 dogs to trouble , cookouts and golf.
