In my opinion autos should be banned from metro cities. Or at least restricted to some areas/suburbs within the cities (like Mumbai/Kolkata). They are an utter nuisance on the roads. They do not have any traffic sense and can go in any direction. Diesel ones are pollutants and they are very unsafe.
Recently Karnataka High Court has directed to stop manufacturing new auto rickshaws.
Actually unless and until any three wheeler stay on the city roads the traffic situation will not improve ... earlier in Chandigarh there weren't any autos and the traffic situation was relatively good inspite of many cars but for the last three to four years there has been a spurt in auto count in the city and as a result the traffic conidion has detoriated a lot
I would like to add one more thing to the note to the auto drivers on Raj's prayer
Dear driver please do not do any thing foolish with the customer with your rear,
because the customer is your bread and his life is at your hands as far as he or she is with you.
He/she too have a family as you have one and they too are waiting for them as your family is waiting for you so never play with their life's.
Be gentle on your driving and reach and help reaching home safe.
