Bangalore Autorickshaw Complaint Process

Yes!, All of us at some point have wanted to tear our hair out in frustration at the rude, insensitive, over priced, moody, rule breaking behaviour of auto drivers in Bangalore. Below is the system for registering complaints, got this via an email forward
The System
Note the vehicle number (KA-XX-YY-ZZZZ) and email the details to transcom@kar.nic.in , Based on the prefix XX (for example KA-01), complaint will be sent to one of the ten RTO offices in Bangalore and adjacent taluk areas.
Alternatively, one can also call these offices at the number given below based on the vehicle number prefix and directly lodge a complaint.

Bangalore Traffic - Life Lessons

1) Size Does Matter,
The bigger you are you have the greater opportunity and sometimes the assumed right to push every other smaller automobile out of your way. Having KSRTC, BMTC on the outsides or i-am- an-idiot-and-i-don't-care driver on the inside off course helps matters enormously
2) Speed does not matter
Yes, splurging all that money on the fastest transport you can get! wasted, completely. Whether it has 2, 4 or 16 wheels the fastest you can go within the city is very slow/hour

3) Rules don't matter
To a lot of people and therefore if you do like and follow them you are at constant risk of injury. ironical but yeah.
4) Money does matter
You can get away with murder if you have enough and are willing to make payments in cash.
5) Skills do matter
If you can call a cabbie's manouvering madness that! but it's evident that they and their brothers in arms the autorickshaw drivers have fathomed the chaos and devised a plan, everyone else be damned!
