Many middle class families are forced to send children to schools by autorickshaws for economic reasons and also because most schools do not own buses. BMTC buses may be safe for children, but for those in the elementary school, travelling by an autorickshaw is better. Yes, there should be a limit to the number of children travelling in an autorickshaw.

A better solution will be to introduce bigger autorickshaws like those run in some other cities. They can accommodate more children without any risk.
