In a news that we shared with you a few months ago, the application on highways in Turkey speed limitswill be increased we talked about . It was expected and as of today legal speed limits changed . However, the speed limits to be applied on all highways are not the same. So on which road, how much is the new speed limit?
According to official statements, speed limits on highways depend on the quality of the road and according to the maximum speed it can lift in designed condition. Because when we look at the speed limits on the new and better quality roads, we see that they are higher than the old roads. If you wish, without further ado, which road you can reach the maximum speedLet’s see together.
What is the new speed limit on highways?
- Edirne-Istanbul (European Highway): 130 km/h
- Istanbul-Ankara (Anatolian Highway): 130 km/h
- Niğde-Mersin-Şanlıurfa Highway: 130 km/h
- Çeşme-İzmir-Aydın Motorway: 130 km/h
- Sakarya-Kurtköy-Odayeri-Kınalı (North Marmara Motorway): 140 km/h
- Malkara-Çanakkale Highway: 140 km/h
- Gebze-İzmir/Menemen-Çandarlı Highway: 140 km/h
- Ankara-Niğde Highway: 140 km/h
The limits we shared above were announced as new limits on highways. However, in radar applications 10% exception share there is also. That way, in addition to the legal limits above, you’ll be able to increase your speed by another 10 percent. According to this; The highest speed value that can be seen by a citizen traveling on a road with a 130 km/h limit 143 km/his the highest speed value that can be seen by a citizen traveling on a road with a 140 km/h limit. 154 km/hwill be.
Even though the speed limits have been legally increased, 154 km/h is not at all. not insignificant we must not forget. Above all else, high speed causes the problem of “speed blindness”. Speed blindness means that the angle of view decreases as your speed increases. Moreover; such high speeds of every car in long distance can’t take it we must not forget. In both cases, it may not be good for your health to speed up that much. There’s also the fuel aspect of the job. The vehicle you have is very fast at the speeds we mentioned. more fuel consumption will do. We don’t know what reason you would find reasonable, but do not overspeed.
