Auto driv­ers re­luc­tant to in­stall me­ters

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

Au­torick­shaw driv­ers in Kash­mir are re­luc­tant to in­stall fare me­ters de­spite clear di­rec­tions. The Traf­fic po­lice has di­rected the three-wheeler driv­ers to re­cal­i­brate the me­ters of their auto rick­shaws within 20 days and warned of ac­tion against those not fol­low­ing the or­des. There were fre­quent com­plaints by lo­cals that auto driv­ers are charg­ing ex­or­bi­tant rates from pas­sen­gers. A traf­fic po­lice of­fi­cer sought co­op­er­a­tion from the peo­ple in im­ple­ment­ing the or­der. How­ever, auto driv­ers claim that fare me­ters would not help them and rather the govern­ment should re­vise fares.
