11 teenagers in a Nissan Pulsar?

By johnboy 30 June 2009 56

AdelaideNow is reporting on a teenager from the Canberra suburb of Griffith caught on Northbourne Avenue with 10 teenage passengers in their Nissan Pulsar.

    Police found there were two passengers in the front seat beside the driver, six passengers in the back seat and two more in the boot.

    The 10 passengers were all between 18 and 19 years old.

    Head of ACT Policing’s traffic operations, Acting Superintendent Daryl Neit, said the driver told officers he was only going down the road.

    “There is no joke side to this particular incident, and no short, safe distance to drive with such an overloaded car,” he said.

No joke? But perhaps a pretty good party until someone gets hurt?

Anyone managed more?

Tristan must have been in the boot as it sounds like he’s copped a large dose of carbon monoxide.

Alright first of all
A very heart-felt f*** you to anyone who has read this thinking things such as what these two lovely sad-sacks have posted;
“What idiots…. All of them should lose their licenses for sheer stupidity.”
-Genie
“Personally I am disgusted with this driver – and hope that people such as this stay as far from me as possible when using the roads…”
-Danman

Genie, Well sorry to burst your bubble but the driver was the only one with a license. Why do you think they crammed all those people in the car you idiot what a stupid thing to say.

Danaman, well personally I’m disgusted with you. Sorry to say it but there are much worse drivers on the road then this kid and one day i hope one of them forces you to rap yourself around a pole while they just don’t give a shit because to these others drivers your just ‘Some gay c***’.

This guy is a good kid. As someone mentioned above me that people do this when only one or two of the people in the social circle that have their licenses. He honestly is a good driver and WAS NOT intoxicated at all.

This is the sort of stuff teenagers do. They’ve been doing it for…oh i dont know 45 years. Get over because honestly i bet most of the people that read this came to this thread because it reminded them of themselves when they were a teen. For all the people though who think they didn’t do that sort of stuff because they were sad and pathetic to live life then god damn boo-hoo.

Rant of the week?
I guess one of the people who would be sobbing at the funerals of the passengers and arranging the road side memorials had the car crashed. Because people have been doing it for 45 years, doesn’t make it less moronic.

It’s irrelevant whether the driver was the only one with their licence or that they weren’t intoxicated (though being drunk may explain the lack of judgement). If this kid was so “good” he would have made multiple trips or called someone to pick up some of the other passengers.

Now THAT is a stupid thing to say. Along with the rest of your post.

+1 to all that have mentioned Action’s peak services ! I cannot wait until economy class opens – on the roof :-). But then I do enjoy being face to armpit with my fellow commuters. Such an earthiness you cannot achieve on privatised transport……

I bet someone giggled or farted!

That might have been the case ant. I remember lots of “Ssshhhhhh I think its the cops” and howstuff it was when someone lit a smoke.

I’ve only managed 7 passengers (IE 8 total) in my old hatchback, a similar sized car to the Pulsar.. but that was limited by available passengers, not car space! Sober driver, shortish drive, yadda yadda.. personally, I think drunk driver + seatbelts is WAY worse than sober driver + extra passengers.

How about 7 passengers AND their large MTBs in an old (smaller 2wd) Hilux dual-cab? (Still not so impressive..)

However, we did get 11 of us adults into a 2-person portable sauna: As best I remember, it was a pine box about 1.1m wide * 0.8m deep * 1.6m high, with a bench seat. There wasn’t a phone box for miles… 😛

We in teh back were quite as church mice but the copper must have suspected something and asked my mate to lift the tarp – there we were packed in like drunk sardines.

3 fairly drunk guys in the boot of a camry sedan, full (legal) load in the front. got pulled over for an RBT but driver had not been drinking.

1 drunk idiot managed to bang his head on the boot lid while the cops were standing there, they did a lap around the car but let us drive on through.

Having recently come back from Nauru, I can tell you that a family of 5 (mum & dad both big islanders plus 3 kids and the shopping) can travel on an old postie bike.

Those peak-hour buses leave us all for dead.

I got 5 large blokes and me into my poor little Suzuki Hatch many many years ago. The 4 drunkest and largest ended up folded up in a drunken mass in the back (no back seats), and the least drunk claimed the front seat (that’s how I knew he was the least drunk). At least two of them were goalkeepers.

It was the 500cc version of the Suzuki Hatch, and the poor little thing had a flat tyre the next morning, it was all too much for it.

hahaha so true!!

Mine would be 8 in a 1973 Honda Civic 2-door… my friend’s first car when we were at school and all anyone could afford was old shitboxes. I remember the guy in the boot kept peering out to see where we were and we had to keep yelling at him to stop it lol. I’m pretty sure we only had to go a couple of suburbs.

PB of sixteen people in the ’64 Studebaker Cruiser sedan – with floor-shift manual – it was 7 in the front seat and 9 in the back.

Six jammed in a metallic purple ’73 Honda Zot 360cc microcar.

Stupid behaviour from days long past.

When I was at school, our whole cricket team once or twice piled into the teacher/coach’s car to get to a game – and it was only Corolla/Datto size. But we were only in grade 6 at the time.

Where’s VG when you need him….

Do you reckon he’s better at stuffing cars than us? I dunno, some of us have been doing pretty well here…

Just wanted some police type questions answered, ant.
