Also there is nothing to hold on to while climbing and one has to climb with the help of another person or by holding the seat of the driver.

Also, I have personally seen these cycle rickshaws toppling down if driven very fast and then applied sudden brakes.

The rickshaw is a popular medium of travel in India. The design issue raised here is elementary but critical. Solving this issue would reduce user effort and increase accessibility.
