(this is straight from the Bangalore Livejournal community):

A forward I got today. Dont know if this really work though.


Hi,
During the last 6 months in Bangalore, I perceived that local commutation here is really exasperating, particularly when you rely on Public transport and has not plan for your own conveyance. I am trying to take some steps, I don't know weather it will be prolific or not, for that i talked to controller office of Auto Unit. That person ensured that no auto person is allowed to ask 1.5 times of charges before 10:00 PM , neither the Auto person will be given extra money during rain. I 've suffered a lot due to auto behavior that during rain or even at 8:00 they start asking extra money.
So there are Auto Complain Unit phone no (Bangalore),please note these -
22253500
22260554
22207750
Please be proactive atleast for the things you can really be benefited. Any time you phase any problem related to Auto Rickshaw call to these no, telling the Auto no. Please also try to spread as much awareness as you can. Together we can make the place better for living.

Thanks!!!!!

What happnes after one complains to the "officials" in India? Typically nothing..

Its best if one is proactive and negotiates before he/she gets into the Auto Rikshaw. But then there is supply & demand. when there is only one auto left who is willing to take you to your destination, then what choice do you have anyways but to agree to pay what is demanded.

crvlvr - Guru

Hi crvlvr,

On what basis are your saying 'Typically nothing happens.. if we complaint?' Have you tried calling these numbers?

Things don't improve because of our attitude of not trying to make them improve. Its time each of us took these opportunities and start calling up these numbers and complaining, rather than just saying 'nothing will happen'.

The attitude of Auto Drivers refusing to go where the customer wants is totally absurd. Its better they put up numbers for their Autos like buses so that we know which auto goes where...

You don't complain about auto drivers.

You Pay auto drivers.

That's it. Inevitable. Law of nature, like lost socks at the laundry and food chains.

an option i have tried on occasion is sitting in the auto and refusing to get down unless he drives me to my destination or the nearest police station.

but you have to have some time on your hands for that.
also, you have to be a little crazy.

I'd love to see auto drivers controlled and made meter-fares-only. From what I hear of other cities, our Chennai autos are way up there with the most expensive in India.

It's way out of control. What chances of doing anything about it? Even if they legislate, it will be just another traffic violation that mostly there is no cop to see, and if there is....

They slap a fine of 500rs on the auto driver. That's what they do when they (police) get a complaint.

agree with nick that chennai is way expensive over other cities. i think its the only major city i know where auto drivers almost never agree to go by the meter.

somebody told me its partly because many autos are owned by cops, so its a question of who will mind the minders, or the blind leading the blind, or whatever.

you have an option with 'call' taxis that go by the meter in chennai now which wasnt there before. these call taxi's are pretty good, courteous, prompt for the most times and the best part...the METER..they go by!

i really thought delhi auto's was worse than chennai to be honest. bombay is the best...99.9% of the auto drivers follow the meter.
