Default Cab strike in Bangalore!!!

I just received a email about the Cab drivers strike who cater to the IT/BPO sector.
Guess the roads will be free of these maniacs behind the wheels for sometime.cheers:

Why is the road jammed if there are less number of cabbies?

Anyway, I have a feeling that my car might suddenly discover that it has 4th and 5th gears too...

The strike looks to be officially on since mid-night. The mails from admin departments have started, saying that there is a strike and transportation is affected.

Strike is supposed to be by the drivers union.

No idea of why is the strike. But it is called up by
'Unregistered drivers union'. Probably to get them 'registered'/'licensed to kill' ;-).

Ah!. I shall take my car into city tomorrow then...
