Driver caught hauling 64 kids in one minivan

The wheels on the bus go round and round — until they're stopped by police in China, who discover the driver is hauling 64 children in a minivan built for eight. This is not what anyone means by the term "bench seats."

Police in Qianan, a city in north China's Hebei Province, say they pulled over the van on suspicion of being overloaded when they discovered the Crayola-packed 4- and 5-year-olds, along with the driver and a teacher. The rear of the minivan had been stripped and wood benches installed to haul children to school with FedEx-like spacial efficiency.


The driver was apparently given only a stiff fine. Maybe next time he'll stop at 50.
