A daily trip in a school bus isn't always the best way kids like to get around, but for 19 South African students, they had an even more cramped experience riding to lunch with their teacher.
Melanie Minnie, a South African nursery school teacher, was pulled over by authorities who found 19 of the woman's students stuffed into her small Renault Clio hatchback.

Minnie was on her way to have lunch at a local burger restaurant with the cramed kids tagging along inside her car.
According to Jalopnik, Minnie was pulled over by South African police when the authorities saw that she had six children in the back of her hatchback. If that wasn't bad enough, after the authorities looked further, they found even more children. The car was configured with Minnie driving, three kids in the front seat, ten kids in the backseat and the six in the back that alerted the police.
Minnie's reason for the trip was that the children were all hungry and needed a break. The nursery school teacher decided to take all of them out for a bite to eat.
This was the first time Minnie attempted to fit 19 kids in her car, and she said it would also be her last.
"This is the first time we went on an outing - and the last time. I will never do that again," Minnie said to Beeld, a South African paper.
According to the NY Daily News, Minnie was fined $60 for overcrowding her vehicle with kids. The report also displayed photos of the children, ages 4 to 6, crammed in the back of Minnie's car. Though the front and rear windows, their bodies are seen basically on top of each other.
The maximum capacity for the Renault Clio is around five people.
