Discipline autorickshaw drivers

THE NEED of the hour is disciplining autorickshaw drivers who violate traffic rules, exceed speed limits and park wherever they want. Complaints to the police fall on deaf ears and appealing to their better sense yields no results.

The roads are close to the breaking point with about 70,000 autorickshaws and over 12 lakh other vehicles. There should be better coordination among the public, police, and autorickshaw drivers' unions to make autorickshaw rides safer. Limiting the number of school children travelling in an autorickshaw is welcome and it follows a High Court order.
