Can car pools overcome problems created by strike of auto-rickshaw and taxi drivers?


Definitely car pools solve a lot of problems. Whether there is transport strike or easy availability of transport, we should encourage car pooling. Besides reducing the dependence on auto rickshaws and taxis. It will reduce the volume of vehicles on roads, eliminate traffic jams and reduce pollution and fuel. Auto rickshaws and taxis will also behave properly with the passengers and charge proper fare. There will be overall a traffic discipline.
