“Don’t risk your precious life”
Those who don’t know how to ride or drive vehicle consider life a lot of easier after the app-based cab system has been come in the country.
But, the one-minute distance picker is not at all safe. We every now and then heard about the safety issues of passengers (especially girls) but a recent study reveals more than 50 percent of the Delhi-NCR cab drivers who took part in the study agreed to drunken driving.
Community Against Drunken Driving is an NGO that is working with Delhi Police to check drunken driving in its survey over 10,000 cab drivers between 2 PM and 1 AM found 55.6% of the driver drink and drive on a regular basis.

According to the Road safety expert and CADD founder Prince Singhal told the Daily Mail:
The research was conducted at 50 prominent public locations of Delhi including airports, railway stations, Metro stations, malls, commercial hubs, office complexes and university areas. 893 out of the 10,000 were drivers of black-and-yellow taxis and 9,107 were cab drivers of radio and app-based cabs.
“‘A key finding of the survey was also that Police enforcement on cab drivers was negligible in Delhi, Gurugram and Noida region and that cab drivers if at all prosecuted were usually charged for speeding, red-light jumping, and rash driving but rarely for drunk driving.”
