Default Does safety mean anything here

I had been on a weekend trip recently to Sangama. On the way back I saw this scene. I was amazed to what extent anyone can go with the carelessness. This picture was taken when I was doing about 70 Km/h. The omni was carrying at least 10 people inside it apart from the kids on the top.

If sticker are anything to go by, this one belonged to a lawer. Your view and comments please. Specially, if anything can be done from our side to make the scene here better.

maybe they were rehearsing for the song "chal chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya"

Cant believe that the van was doing that speed with people on top. Carelessness and negligence towards safety at its best.

thats really a bad sight,

One thing you could have done is that atleast stopped him right there and conveyed him in a decent manner of what he is doing with the kids on top, some circus training or what....

As being responsible citizen we should tell some discipline of what they are doing.....

exactly what i thought Shiva.

That ad with atleast 50 people perched on top of the bus.. Was damm hilariuos. So i'm guessing this was for another smaller adhesive producing company ad.

But seriously there could be many reasons
1. Its cause people aren't bothered with safety.
2. If it was a commercial van then it was greed and foolishness of the people on top(in their minds going "hame kuchh nai ho sakta")
3. If the kids are the drivers himself.. then i'm guessing a money crunch. A classic examples being mum dad and the kids on a scooter.. makes u sad not because its unsafe.. but more cause the parents have no other way.

Not at all a good idea - if the driver panics and applies sudden brakes, the kids on the roof will fall off.
