A rickshaw with a family in it crossed in front of me and went through the intersection

As I stood at the intersection, I saw a rickshaw coming. Here in Kolkata, there are still many rickshaws running around. They run on the roadways just like cars. A rickshaw carrying a family drove through a crowded intersection with ease. It seemed to be a hindrance to the people driving the cars, but they didn't care, they were running in the middle of the road.

I wondered if the rickshaw wallah was not scared to get into the middle of the intersection with just one body. Maybe he's used to it because he does it every day. In any case, the family sitting in the seats must be thrilled.
