There is no fixed rate of rickshaw fare. It is mutually settled after bargaining. He works in the hot sun and torrential rain. Sometimes he carries goods on his rickshaw. Most of the rickshaw drivers do not know the traffic rules. Often a rickshaw puller falls a victim to accidents and may lose life. Very often rickshaw pullers are not will paid by the passengers. Some passengers look down upon them. This is not desirable at all. Because they are human beings. We should be kind to them.
