Q: Can I transport passengers in the cargo area?

Can I transport passengers in the cargo area?

Passengers should never, under any circumstances, be in the cargo area of your car when the vehicle is in motion. The cargo area does not have sufficient safety features for passengers, and it is an illegal place for a passenger to be if car is being driven.
