Dimapur: The Dimapur Commissioner of Police yesterday fixed the speed of motor vehicles within city limits at 40 kmph for a period of one month with effect from January 5 to February 3.
"In the interest of public safety and convenience and as per rules laid down under Section 112 of Motor Vehicles Act, Commissioner of Police, Dimapur has notified that the vehicular speed limit is fixed at 40kms per hour within Dimapur town area up to Chümoukedima for a period of one month with effect from January 5 to February 3," the Police's notification stated.
