Cambodia News (Phnom Penh): On January 23, 2020, a drunk PassApp driver was found lying on the road by some passers-by, after he had passed out, the worse for wear, close to his tuk-tuk in front of a coffee shop in Sangkat 4, Sihanoukville.

Tuktuk, anyone ?

Small wheels Small man
the Yuk Yuk life
Slavery, cheap wine and woe, that's where driving PassApps and Grab will take you every time.

We choose freedom, high riding and self respect.
not the shame-filled lowly rat cage life.

Say's all about the customer too.

Do Tuk Tuks have seatbelts for when a drunk Pass App driver crashes?

Do you have seat belts on your horse?
or your chariot?

Ben Hur didn't.
So why do you reckon a real Tuk Tuk gladiator would?

ps, everybody this ^^^ is not a real Cambodian Tuk Tuk
it is a rat cage, not a chariot
and the flake-out is a slave, not one of that select bunch of most perfectly freemen in the kingdom.
Hm.

No space in the rat cage for sleeping or a decent hammock. Nor any space for a case or two of beer.

He wimped out - not fit for the mighty guild IMO.

Good point. The traditional tuk tuk can serve as a home and a job whereas the indian ones are a job only. Before Mrs Cargo made a decent man out of me, walking up st172 from pontoon in the early hours of the morning there was (still is?) a bunch of tuk tuks covered with mosquito nets just before the Cyclo hotel.
