*LOL* True. I once got driven by an drunk auto driver from Tidel Park to Besant nagar. Not a ride I enjoyed too much.

But as to the question being asked in the poll, what is the context? I am a bit confused.

Well they DO feature seatbelts, even if this was an ad - how many Bajaj auto ads have you seen with seatbelts??? Come to think of it- why arent seatbelts mandatory for the auto men? Or are they above the law?

One way to think of -
If they're belted in an accident, they'll be dead.

India had exported some Ambys in the early 90s to the UK. As many had expected, the project didn't really take off.

I know the Brits were a bunch of a-holes and enslaved us but do they really deserve this ? ;-) If we're after revenge then maybe we oughta send a few of those sob drivers from delhi as well - that should make them come and offer to return the Kohinoor to us.

but seriously, these vehicles should be simply banned - they're a nuisance, unsafe and exporting them only hurts the image our country as well.

I don't know why the government cant help autorickshaw drivers in India to replace their khataras with 800's - I think a CNG autorickshaw is only a bit cheaper than an 800.

So who else makes (or is planning to make) ricks in India other than Bajaj, Piaggio and Scooters India (taken over by Piaggio?) ? Not including the trikes made by Mahindra and Bajaj Tempo (oops - Force Motors!).
