There were a lot of people on top of a cycle-rickshaw riding through the city of Dhaka. It looked like a whole family was riding on one cycle-rickshaw. From the looks of it, there were four people on it, three adults and one girl. It was too much.

The cycle rickshaws in Bangladesh also have a covered seat at the back, just like the ones in India. I don't know whether there is such a thing as capacity in such a type of pedicab. But four people may be too many. The man on the far right had nowhere to put his body but his hips on the seat, and he was leaning forward.

I felt sorry for this pedicab driver who was pedaling this cycle-rickshaw. These pedals must be quite heavy. As I expected, the cycle-rickshaw could only go crawling along.
