Overloaded

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.

In some 3rd countries, they can actually cramp 20 adults inside(some might travel on top of it too)

If you UTube it, there are plenty of examples.
