Passengers are crammed into another Nosimon. These vehicles, built on water-pump engines, are not permitted on the highways, as they are unfit and prone to serious accidents. In reality, these three-wheelers are a commonplace. Not only do people routinely get on them, they do it dangerously, risking their lives.
