The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway allows a maximum speed of 120 km per hour. However, it is important to avoid unnecessary stops while driving on this expressway. Sudden stops can result in fines.

If there is a technical issue with the vehicle, it can be stopped on the expressway, but not elsewhere.
To ensure safety and prevent accidents, several measures have been implemented on the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway. There are no speed breakers along the entire highway stretch from Delhi to Vadodara. The highway has been constructed with an elevated design, and barricades have been installed on both sides to prevent stray animals from entering the road. This expressway, built using advanced German technology, provides a smooth driving experience even at a speed of 120 km per hour. Slow-moving vehicles like auto-rickshaws, bikes, tractors, horse carts, and bullock carts are not allowed on this expressway.
