We have never needed any additional proof of the scope of rickshawalas’ incompetence.
Most of us are familiar with the feeling of dread that comes with hiring a rickshaw in Bangladesh.
Apart from the horrific manners of some rickshawalas, there is a good chance you might never see your destination.
Over a thousand passengers get lost in the mazes of our cities every day, and the problem lies in rickshawalas’ monopoly over route navigation.
The Civil Transportation Authority, Bangladesh says it plans to contract out privately made GPSs to rickshaws for navigation, which it tried in the past but failed due to pressure from rickshawalas.
We have never needed any additional proof of the scope of rickshawalas’ incompetence when it comes to serving customer demands.
But when the rickshawalas’ actions start to directly affect their passengers, it makes the case for prompt privatisation of their navigation system that much stronger.
