They should be nicknamed "COCKROACH".
If I had my way, I would want all these cockroaches of the city roads.
Its a disgrace to have them go-carting amongst the modern cars of today.
They are ok for villages, although, I wouldn't support that either.

good to hear that you are safe gautam. but what is with you and accidents nowadays.

as far as these rickshaw drivers are concerned, they are maniacs and they think they rule the road.

god save us from them.

Those auto drivers who stick out fingers or legs must have attended auto driving training schools that probably abound in west/south india. No such thing in delhi, so our autos dont do this as well. They just stop, turn, spit, reverse, flip without any indication.

Hence, to survive in delhi, you need to think like an auto or a blueline driver.

Worse! When they scratch up ur car, they ran like hell & even if u just touch em up they gather a huge mob.

Due to these maniacs the fuel reserves r goin low.

Good to hear nothing happened.
You cant do much about these autos, they have their own union and will support the auto driver even if they are at fault.
Strict laws and vigilance by the traffic police are whats needed to curb their menace.

n_c these chaps will never change in generations to come. Good that the Pailo dint rear end you car.

I have been lucky enough to flip an auto with my car . Not my fault though, the dude jumped the signal and I t-boned the rick.

I cherish every moment of it since then.

!!! I bet that was the expression every single person's face,who had to stand on their car brakes to avoid the pile up!

Glad that you got away without any damage,N_C..

I really don't understand how these autodrivers function. No common sense for sure, they tend to turn things around when they mess up and cause problems on the streets.

'Or better still, lined up and SHOT!!!!' ... ..I'm all set!! Just let me know where to bring the guns.

Also, have u guys seen the pointed spikes that come out of their rear wheels? As if they want to rip apart all the tyres that come near to them.

Infact i was hoping someone can build a instrument like that...when a auto comes near, a sharp spike comes out of the car and punctures the tyres...my small revenge for numerous scratches.

bad analogy. hey have headlights, and tails. they have proper 4 wheels (not three) and they don't wobble. mostly cows follow lane. they are very difficult turn in under a fraction of a second. and they don't have to take a wrong direction just to fill up at a bunk. if you shout at them they will defenitely understand that you are shouting.
