25 Overloaded Vehicles That Look Like Collapsing Every Minute


Usually, when loading a car with stuff, you respect a certain limit. Over that limit, it gets too much for the vehicle and for yourself, too. There are some people, though, who don’t understand that limit or they just simply don’t want to understand because there are greater issues to deal with, so they overload their vehicle without any care in the world.

Sometimes, loading your vehicle like that can cause even greater trouble, but let’s hope that the people in these photos survived the trip and are well now. What vehicles? Well, trucks, bikes, scooters, motor-tricycles, trains and so on.

I don’t even want to think about the structure of these vehicles, the brakes, the tires, the engine…just take a look at the pictures below. Your idea about how many people can fit into a specific type of vehicle will be greatly challenged.

1. Somewhere in Sahara – this is the most overloaded vehicle I ever saw

It moves, so there is still space for more

2. Shanghai

This might just defy the laws of gravity a little bit, but who are we to talk about gravity when the foundation of China’s economy, the migrant workers, are moving goods around the city on their bicycle?
