Heroic driving

Many autorcikshaw drivers believe reckless driving is a form of bravery.

Stunt driving belongs to movies and not on roads, especially while transporting children to school and back. The Karnataka High Court has made it clear that carrying more than six children in one autorickshaw was dangerous. It is also in the interest of drivers not to take too many children; they will be a distraction and can cause an accident while the driver is busy trying to keep them still without squirming all over the vehicle.

Let school authorities, who collect heavy fees, think of a safe alternative.
