Motorbike Loaded

This is a great picture of the common site of a loaded two wheeler. On this particular bike there are 4, but with a bit of adjustment the folks on board probably could have squeezed in another small 'un! When overseas visitors come to Tiruvannamalai they are first amazed at the apparent lack of driving restrictions and regulations and once over the shock; jump on in at the deep end! In this respect I have only ever seen an overseas visitor just the one time, wearing a protective crash helmet whilst operating a two wheeler.

To read a funny, satirical related article please check out an earlier post on this Blog: Indian Rules of the Road.

Yes, enforcing any rules in India regarding helmets, seatbelts or number of occupants of vehicles is unheard of. Meanwhile here in USA helmets are required even for riding a bicycle!
