Eight People on a Motorbike – level 1

27-04-2023 15:00

A motorbike is for one person or two people. However, it is possible to have 8 people on one motorbike. You can see it in a video.

In China, one man in a car saw this. He filmed the situation. He thought that it was dangerous.

The video shows one man who drives the bike. Two girls sit at the front of the motorbike and three women with two children sit at the back.

Difficult words: thought (“think” in the past), dangerous (when a person can get hurt or die).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What safety risks do you think are associated with having 8 people on one motorbike?
