A teacher was today found guilty of dangerous driving – after police caught him with 13 people in a Volvo car built for five. Abraham Gniwosch, 30, crammed his family into the car so they could enjoy a day out to the farm in Llandudno, North Wales.
He had ten passengers in the back - two women with babies on their laps and six children under the age of 10 half-seated or standing up. A man aged 28 and a seven-year-old boy was also in the front passenger seat of the car.
Nia Lloyd, prosecuting at Llandudno in North Wales, said none of the 13 were wearing a seat belt and said the Volvo S70 was 'dramatically overloaded'.
Gniwosch, from Tottenham, London, insisted in evidence that he was wearing a seat belt and that he always drove carefully.
He was fined £500 with £415 costs, banned from driving for a year and must take an extended re-test before getting behind the wheel again.
