Totally unacceptable! Nov 21, 2008

The number plate is covered! This must clearly be against the rules!

PS: And there I was thinking I did well when I once fitted six passengers into the back of my old little Golf.

The one with his arms up.. Nov 21, 2008

It looks like he is desperately indicating that he is in serious need of a bathroom.

Ouch...

limb protruding Nov 22, 2008

that's a $30 fine for each limb, and a $60 fine the driver who allows anyone in his vehicle to have a limb protruding from the vehicle.

But technically, they are on the vehicle...

Not in Sweden Nov 28, 2008

Mats did not take the photo in Sweden.

About traffic rules: My Swedish driving instructor told me, years ago in the very beginning, that you have no rights on the road; only obligations.

A rule worth remembering.

Everybody in that picture looks like bearing an obligation, rather than enjoying a right

This comment reminded me that for a rally in college, we had to fit 20 people in a VW bug! Yes, it was possible, but trying to get out... oh, lord!

Funky picture. How big is that truck, really?
