Now, while this may be great news for the Tata Punch owners but the issue of people overspeeding on roads needs to be addressed. Most of such cases take place under high-speed scenarios. We must always follow traffic regulations and not drive over the speed limit. The simple reason is that even if you are not at fault, you could control the situation created by the other driver on the road if you are driving slowly. Hence, it is not only great for you and your family, but also for other drivers on the road.
