Celebrities or notable people taking an auto ride to avoid road traffic is not uncommon. In the past, we have witnessed numerous instances of celebrities riding in auto rickshaws. In India, auto rickshaws are a huge help with commuting. In an unlikely scenario, Martin Schwenk, the CEO of Mercedes-Benz India, was snarled up in traffic in Pune. To avoid the traffic, he had to choose a different route and take an auto. As soon as the incident surfaced on the internet, it left netizens stunned. 

On Thursday, Martin took to his Instagram account and shared a picture of an auto. Along with the picture, he wrote a caption describing the incident. In the caption, he mentioned that while travelling in his S-class through Pune, it became stuck in traffic. Then he stepped out of the car, walked for a few kilometres, and then took an auto to his destination. His caption read, "If your S-class is stuck in traffic on the wonderful Pune roads - what do you do? Maybe getting off the car, start walking for a few KM’s and then grabbing a rickshaw?"

As soon as he uploaded the picture, it went viral on the internet and netizens flocked to the comment section to react on it. One user wrote, "Hope you had a smooth ride Sir." Another user wrote, "So humble, honestly hats off to you for staying grounded." A third user commented, "Well, lucky you.
