According to the ministry's guidelines, it is necessary to hold hands on both sides of the back seat of the bike. There is a hand hold for the safety of the occupants. If the bike driver suddenly brakes, he can catch it. Along with this, a stand with legs on both sides is required for those sitting back. At least half of the left side of the rear tire of the bike should be securely covered. So that the clothes of the person sitting behind do not fall into the wheel.
