Abbotsford driver fined for trunk passenger

Abbotsford Police Department dish out $311 for overstuffed car

After an unusual incident on Friday night, the Abbotsford Police Department is reminding locals that the trunk is not a suitable place for a passenger to sit.

Cops tweeted out a photo that night of the offending party, and the driver was handed a $311 fine for operating a vehicle with too many people inside.

The car contained six adults in the vehicle proper – two in the front seats and four in the back seat, with one person spread out over the laps of the other three.

A seventh person was then located in the trunk.

APD reminded all drivers that a vehicle can only carry as many people as there are seat belts.
