Put an end to reckless driving

Drivers of autorickshaws should take utmost care while transporting children, as these vehicles don't have doors. More the number of children more will be the number of school bags, lunch bags, and water bottles. With reckless driving, even at slightest jerk there is the danger of children falling out of the vehicle along with their bags. Doors are a must for such autorickshaws.

Most autorickshaw drivers violate rules to make extra money and put the lives of children in danger. School authorities and parents must regularly inspect, warn drivers against rash driving and also against carrying more than six children at a time. Drivers can still make money by running more trips and charging more for each child.
