Rickshaw and the Rickshaw Driver in Mumbai
In Mumbai Auto Rickshaws are one of the main part of our living in the suburbs, because if u wish to go anywhere really quick you can catch a rickshaw from anywhere around the suburbs.
But they are not allowed to get in the city.

RTO Officer checking meters
Meter mechanic say 'Auto meters not tampered' They have not even checked on tampering.
They have only checked on weather it has been recalibrated and whether it has been sealed.Even to this day there are so many autos running with tampered meters
But I am sure that this problem will be rectified soon.
Review From 'Sharell Cook' About Rickshaws
"I had a terrible time with the auto rickshaw drivers in Jaipur during my recent trip there. Not one of them would go by the meter. Instead, every time, I was told, "Sorry, meter broken, madam." Then, they proceeded to quote me twice the fare of what a meter taxi would charge.Coming from Mumbai, where most auto rickshaw drivers will go by the meter, I found it irritating and exhausting. I'm convinced Mumbai's auto rickshaw drivers are the best in India. That's certainly been my experience, and I've been in autos in Delhi and Chennai as well. (The auto rickshaw drivers in Kolkata aren't too bad, but the problem is that the autos there are shared with other people and usually only go to and from certain destinations).
My praise of Mumbai's auto rickshaw drivers sparked off debate amongst my friends though, many of whom it seems have had bad experiences with them.
So, what do you think? Which major Indian city has the worst auto rickshaw drivers? Do leave a comment and share your experiences as well."
The Inner view when u site in the Rickshaw
The Rickshaw is a three wheeler vehicle, which carries three passengers and the driver, it is a black in color with a yellow stripe in between.It doesn't have a door or seat belts, the maximum speed of a rickshaw is 50km/hr but even if the rickshaw is going in the speed of 35km/hr and breaks or goes on a pothole, it is felt as a surprise.Drivers seem crazy while driving but are very concentrated.
The local language to call them are 'Auto' and 'rickshah'. Its the most fastest and cheapest means of transport for short and long distance for every person.
