Chennai Auto Driver — Chennai auto driver service
On 4th May 09, I took an auto from T Nagar (Kumaran stores, Panagal park) to Chinmaya Nagar. The auto driver demanded Rs. 120 but I told him that I have always given Rs. 100/= for this distance. At first he refused, then he bargained for Rs. 110/ = and finally when I tried to hire another driver, he said that he will take us to Chinmaya nagar for Rs. 100/=. My mother, my daughter and I boarded the auto. He drove in a very rash manner and I cautioned him on this. My mother was also not happy with this. He did not pay any heed to our advice.
At Vadapalani, AVM theatre, I asked him to turn right and asked him to go through Saligramam because that is the common route that all auto drivers take. At this point, he started shouting and said, "You asked me to take you to Chinmaya Nagar and I will only come there". " You people cannot change it in the middle". We (both myself and my mother) tried to reason with him saying that this is the route that all auto wallas take and we have not asked anything different.
Then he started using foul language and hurled abuses at me and my mother who is a retired bank employee.We had no other option but to ask him to leave us at Saligramam itself because we found his language unbearable and I was close to tears. Even my mother was provoked and started shouting at him. After we got down from the auto at Saligramam, I handed him over the Rs. 100 note that I had promised. He took it and started giving me the change. I was so bugged by his behaviour that I did not accept the change.
The auto registration no is TN 07 AX 9437. I do not know the auto driver's name. He is lean with an bearded and unshaven face and was wearing a striped red T shirt.
I want the auto driver's licence to be immediately cancelled. He is not fit to drive any vehicle because of his rash driving and his reckless attitude towards passenger safety. I also want him to be booked for creating discomfort and inconvenience to me and my mother during the travel of 30 mts from T nagar to Saligramam.
