Auto drivers disregard traffic norms

If refusing fares and misbehaving with commuters wasn't bad enough, auto drivers in the city also brazenly violate traffic norms, even in the presence of traffic policemen.

If refusing fares and misbehaving with commuters wasn't bad enough, auto drivers in the city also brazenly violate traffic norms, even in the presence of traffic policemen.

Continuing with its campaign against errant auto drivers in the city, Hindustan Times visited several spots in the western suburbs between Friday and Saturday, and found drivers openly flouting norms.

The violations committed by rogue auto drivers range from parking illegally in no-parking areas, taking u-turns even when they are prohibited to do so, and parking in the middle of the road, obstructing vehicles.

At several spots, the auto drivers got away with these violations even though traffic policemen were posted nearby. The cops were either occupied with fining motorists, or turning a blind eye to the auto drivers' antics.
