Shared School (bus?) Auto's..

Early morning such scenes are common in the city. The auto rickshaws that ply kids to schools, they operate privately and gather kids from same area to ferry one or many schools dropping the kids back and forth. The parents are worry free as each student gets picked up and dropped personally by the auto driver from their door step ….

Are we waiting for a tragedy to happen before these STUNTS are banned from public roads. The auto's and private vans are perhaps more densely packed than a can of sardines and yet the traffic police and parents as well turn a blind eye. WE are so moved by desperation I guess

Thanks Benjamin.

Anand, you are right there is a great risk element attached in this arrangement. But how many indian roads you see without any risk, I guess society has slowly accepted to live with this risk element.
