Kindergarten teacher put 19 kids in car
Pretoria – A kindergarten teacher was fined by Pretoria metro police for transporting 19 toddlers in her car for an outing to a local Spur restaurant.
Melanie Minnie was pulled over by metro police after a worried member of the community saw the children spill out of Minnie’s Renault Clio in the parking lot of a local mall, reported Beeld.
The children were between the ages of 4 and 6.
“It was the first time that we went on an outing. And the last time,” said Minnie, who had clearly got a huge fright.
“I will never do it again. We are really a very nice crèche,” she said.
Rietfontein crèche was only about 1km from the shopping centre.
A metro police spokesperson said Minnie was fined for transporting more people in a car than it was able to seat.
Her car was able to seat five adults or one adult and eight toddlers.
Minnie was fined R1 500.
