Drive along ECR

Yesterday for the first time in so many years I drove along the East Coast Road (Chennai – Pondicherry). Of course I did not go till Mahabalipuram, we stopped at Casaruna Bay (forgive me for the spelling). This place is about 18kms before Mahabalipuram and one of the private beaches doning the ECR.
This is one road where I find speed limit specified. Not even did I find the speed limit on the Golden Quadilateral. The maximum speed is 80kms/hr. Of course this is not a free road.
There are road blocks at many places to reduce the accidents due to drunken driving and also checkon drivers and also makes it easy for checking vehicles… for anything and everything…
If you are caught on this stretch, it costs you a lot…

But I should say its a beauty to drive and the sea breeze flowing into the vehicle
