Cars not only cause pollution and congestion but are also primarily responsible for road fatalities in India.

In an interview by Economic Times, Rajiv Bajaj, managing director, Bajaj Auto, welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision to ban diesel cars with engines larger than 2.0-litre in Delhi. He argued that fewer cars will be better for cities since they not only cause pollution but also cause road fatalities.

The top official stated that when the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 complies with European norms, there is no justification for cars no to do so. He went on do add that cities will be much more livable if we have more bicycles, two-wheelers, three-wheelers, quadricycles and effective public transportation and thereby much fewer cars.

Rajiv Bajaj says that quardricycles are a part of smart and sustainable solutions for the future.

The man who never hesitated to voice his anti-car opinions said:

..who is it that is primarily responsible for running over all poor pedestrians, cyclists, two-wheeler riders and three-wheeler passengers? Big, heavy, fast cars of course. In an accident, it is the motorcycle rider who’s dead. The motorcycle rider is victim, the culprit is sitting behind the airbag.

That’s not all. He described cars as “enormously sub-optimal” for intra-city use. He also believes that quadricycles, like the Bajaj Qute

(RE60), are a part of smart and sustainable transport solution for the future. Speaking about Delhi’s even odd rule, Mr. Bajaj opined that it could be effective if executed meticulously and thoughtfully.

In another news, Bajaj Auto and Bajaj Finance have contributed INR 10 crores to Prime Minster National Relief Fund to provide relief support to Chennai and other parts of Tamil Nadu which were damaged by flood.
