Default Gas-powered Rickshaws - 08-20-2012, 04:10 PM

The nuisance called gas-powered rickshaws

JALALABAD (PAN): Doctors and residents say gas-powered rickshaws are a
cause of several health problems in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern
Nangarhar province.

The three-wheelers cause respiratory, cancer and skin ailments for the
people due to the increasing air pollution in the city, public health official
Dr. Yousuf Ahadi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Continuous smoke damages plants, leaving parched newly-planted sapling
along roads, he added.

Authorities have conducted several anti-encroachment campaigns in the
city against the gas-driven rickshaws, traffic department head Col. Ghulam
Dastagir Rahim said.

Resident Khalilullah said they are tired of perpetual noises and ubiquitous
smoke. “Doctors twice did a nose job on me in the past two years; they
told me of a tumor in my nose caused by smoke.”

He asked the government to ban the rickshaws powered by inferior gas.

Thousands of saplings were planted in the spring, but only 10 percent of
them remained green, said another resident, Dost Mohammad.

Rickshaw driver Ghulam Hussain said the culture of gas-driven vehicles has
been imported from Pakistan. “Earlier, there were fuel rickshaws and there
was no problem.

“Later, the business of gas-driven rickshaws was introduced in Peshawar
and traders gradually brought the technique here,” he added. He would
never use gas that causes problem for the people, Hussain vowed.

Another rickshaw driver, Saifullah, said the officials had not educated them
so far on the health hazards associated with the use of gas in vehicles.

To advise others is an easy matter, the difficulty is accepting advice -- since it is bitter for those who follow their
own inclinations and desires

But gas burns much cleaner than fuel! This makes no sense. There must be a tecnological problem, but gas is sure better thn fuel.

Yes. That's why in BD petrol powered rickshaws have all been withdrawn from the major cities and replaced with CNG (compressed natural gas) powered. Must not be the gas. It has to be something else.
