Addressing autorickshaw drivers of different unions in the city at Traffic Police Station on Saturday, she said that number of autorickshaws in the city was increasing day by day but most of the drivers were giving their vehicles to the boys who have failed SSC or no knowledge about driving or traffic rules. This trend was leading to a number of road accidents, she added.
