Wow, this is so appalling; anything for the sake of convenience!

And in both cases, its a Wagon R. I hope Suzuki don't advertise this as a first-in-segment feature.

^^^ Don't give them ideas! Else next limited edition will be WagonR Max, with no useless accessories such as seat belts or rear view mirror, only cramped 7-8 seats sit maximum persons in the car and phone charger near every seat. Perhaps a small cupboard for storing children's toys when they are done with it.

No they wont. If they had to, they would have advertised that you can carry a refrigerator in a WagonR!!

Blame this on the stupid driver, obviously.

After all, he's taken practicality to the next level, literally. Thanks to the Boxy design, you can only do this in a WagonR, LOL!!

I think its the same mentality where an entire family travels on a two wheeler, then why not extend the logic for a 4wheeler!! Seriously they need some safety awareness.

Hang on a sec!
I saw a Waggy too, some months ago, with a child on the tray. In fact, I did take a picture, but didn't upload since the editing made it unclear. Let me try and fish it out, so see if its a serial offender or some new feature from MSIL being used.

Very sad. Once I saw a child crawling in and out of the luggage area from the the 3rd row of a moving Ertiga and it was a heart in the mouth situation for me following such a car.

Another time, a child was standing between the driver and pillion of a bike seat and the moron was going the wrong way in a One-way road.

India's population growth will stall if people have to pass a common sense test before reproducing.

A lot of children would very much want to play around on the tray or boot area while the vehicle is in motion. Even my son has asked me a couple of times. Better sense should always prevail. There's a limit to how much we can give in.
I've seen many hatches with kids in such places in Bangalore.
The other day a lady in an Octavia with the kid almost out of the sun roof and waving happily at everyone. .
Waste of time talking to these drivers.

Did find it, but then realized why I didn't upload it in the first place. Can hardly make out what is on the parcel tray.Though it was a blue Waggy, so maybe a MSIL feature.

So much for being the "Smart choice for the Smart YOU"
