    At the initial introduction of the three wheelers, it was a definite convenience at a low cost for the citizen at the bottom end of the economic scale. However, in the recent past,it became a symbol of the criminals, kidnapper, bootlegger, political thug and drug dealer and distributor, and a maniac on the road. There has not been much of an improvement in the model and the ride continues to be jarring. High time the RMV saw to it that a more comfortable suspension system is incorporated.

    Wipe off 3 wheelers altogether! The menace is a haven for illicit activity of all types and ruins society. It's a waste of phone storage space for having a 3 wheelers app. A taxi car is much cheaper, safe and comfortable! But if you onto something which you can't get over the counter
