The first few photos were taken on the outskirts of Aurangabad, India. In the first photograph you can see two taxis standing by as people pile into them. They get too crowded for the operator to shut the door. The conductor often stands outside to control the crowds.
This is how many people travel. Desperate to get on. This white coloured vehicle is not even a licensed taxi. But where there is a need, there is a way. This picture should be used only in the size given below as it is not of a high resolution.
The photograph was shot from a moving car while overtaking, and both vehicles were traveling at a fair speed. Amazing how the men are managing to hold on.
This photo was shot in the suburbs of Mumbai. It is a common sight to see about four people in the passenger seat. At times a person sits with the driver of the autorickshaw, mostly a friend of his. In this particular photo as many as three people are sitting on the driver's seat which is a single seat. It is likely to be a passenger.
This picture was taken on the highway between Mumbai and Pune from a cell-phone. The people around the jeep were inside it. Often these vehicles are unlicensed private cab operators. Not surprising that accidents take place.
