The MNTC has started to apprehend motorists violating the 100kph maximum speed limit on the closed-system portion of the NLEX.
They would apprehend the said motorist upon approaching the Bocaue tollplaza (going to Manila).
This cannot still be implemented in the open-system portion since there exits of the said portion doesn't have a toll gate.
How do they do this? There are imbedded and fixed speed traps along the stretch of the NLEX. Once you "trigger" the said traps, a camera (placed around 40 ft overhead) will take your license plate numbers.
Hahaha. gusto ko yung solution ni sir mbt. Sana naman taasan nila kahit konti yung maximum speed limit. 120-140 kph man lang sana. Mazdamazda, thanks for the warning. Mahilig pa naman ako mag speed sa NLEX.
di naman... nasa open-system portion naman ako lagi (balintawak to bocaue). so medyo safe pa ako. hehe.
got that info from an officemate (who travels pampangga to manila daily).
btw, I've already memorized the locations of all speedtraps within the open-system. what I usually do is to slow down before the speed trap then accelerate again afterwards. the portion of the speedtrap has a horizontal tar strip across it. then there's the 40-ft camera tower (and even a power room) in the shoulder portion.
the 100kph speed limit is such a bore (especially on long drives). I agree with kulit, it should be around 120-140kph.
before MNTC took over the operations of NLEX, i was always cruising at 150-160kph. since february, 100-110kph nalang ako because i thought implemented na agad ang speed limit. kating kati na kasi ang paa ko to step more on the accelerator because ang daming nagoovertake sa akin now that they're finally put their speed traps in place and in operation, mas mapipigilan na akong mag speeding
don't know if it's true, 2.5K daw ang penalty for overspeeding.
Oo nga M2. Last friday galing ako San Fernando, Pampanga, pagdating sa bocaue tollgate(last toll ng Closed-system) pinahinto yung adventure sa tabi kong tollgate tapos yung nasa harap ng toll yung lalaking taga mntc me hawak na papel(i presume listahan ng plate number) at pinatabi. kala ko kung ano na yun.
