Digital meters in autorickshaws

I travelled in an auto that had a digital meter installed (still a rarity though) and it was interesting to note that in addition to the fare it also displays the distance travelled. A quick check for any sign of tampering, though not exact. Hope the transport department can overcome the auto unions' opposition and push through the switchover to such passenger-friendly devices. On an aside, the monopoly of Standard Metres of Pune in this space continues.
