Ask yourself this question: What makes a culture accept this?

This is amazing video of rush hour this past July in Bangladesh, when Ramadan ended:

I don’t accept that this status quo is just the result of poverty.  It seems to me that there’s something in the culture that doesn’t even think to build a better mousetrap.  Or could it be that the culture is so stratified and stagnant that it’s impossible to build a better mousetrap.
