I am one of the missionaries that has a caged truck.

We bring mission teams to the mountains to work in our cooperative and since there are no roads we need the cage for safety purposes.

People can be thrown out of a truck on a mountain road if there is nothing to hang on to. Obviously some people living in the city have never been to their own mountain areas to see the dangers.
