13 in a Car!! & The Swimmer

This man was convicted 2 days ago of dangerous driving, he was given a 12 month driving ban, a heavy fine and ordered to take an extended driving test.
Abraham Gniwosch crime was over crowding his 5 seater Volvo S70 car, how many people do you think he managed to put in the car?? 7 maybe 9!! he was stopped by the police who found 13 people in his car! yes 13!!, can you imagine that??
The BBC did a reconstruction, you can watch the video here and see if they actually managed to cram 13 people into a similar car.
Actually I noticed that the worst offenders when it comes to cramming cars with people are usually Muslims and Jews, I used to work for a Muslim school and it was a common sight every morning to see parents dropping their children and their neighbours children at school, usually many kids would be there and of course not enough seat belts, I have noticed the same happening outside Jewish schools in North London, while I believe that most parents do it for the sake of convenience and not meaning any harm to the children, it is still dangerous and can cause injury and deaths which can be prevented just by sticking to driving laws.

How did he manage to put 13 people in this car??

Many Libyan & international websites have been writing about the American/Libyan girl, Mercedes or Asmahan Farhat representing Libya as the first ever Libyan female to swim for Libya at the Olympics, while I wish her the best of luck I think the information is wrong, a Libyan female swam for Libya at the 2004 Athens Olympic, Amira Edrahi took part in the Women's 50m Freestyle, I do seem to remember as well Libyan female swimmers taking part in the 1980 Moscow Olympics, I was a bit young then so I am not sure of this but I think 2 Libyan/Italian sisters took part, perhaps someone knows about this more than me.

Salam Anglo-Libyan,

I seem to be hearing the circus music in my head when I read the part about the 13 people piled in one car. Good grief! LOL

Best wishes to the Libyan swimmer. Sorry, don't have info on the others.

Amira said...

Haha 13 I've seen similar scenes in Libya but never here!! The driver says he's been silly but not dangerous??!If thats just silly...than what does he class as dangerous exactly...

Go Libya Go!! But I don't see many Libyan fathers letting their daughters compete as swimmers...I could be wrong though!!

This was good, it reminded me of my last visit to Libya, i was driving one of the smallest cars you can imagine, i was wearing my seatbelt ;-), while the rest of them weren't, with me were 3 other women, and 4 kids i think if they weren't 5. The volvo showed in the pictue is pretty big compared to the car i was driving. Just a note, i didn't have a choice, we only had that car, and we wanted all to go out together.

About the libyan girl, it will stay something strange for a lot of libyians that a libyan girl is swimming. However, i wish her best of luck, maybe she will put Libya in news for something completly differnet.

& abut the swimmer .........good luck 4 her ant wa y she'll raise our country name which we couldn't do

a_akak said...

I have seen a Libyan family do something very similar although i didnt count them but it must have been in that region

I dont see it as a big deal that a Libyan swimmer is going to the Olympics be it male or female ...

Fe Aman Allah

salam ibeebarbie
yes I can hear the drum roll too :o)

Amira, the driver never admitted liability, in another article I read that he blamed his sister for stuffing herself and her children in his car.

salam Safia
at last you are back, you have been missed :o)

Libyan, true that many Libyans do that even here in the UK, glad you are safe :o)

loza, that was naughty, 11!!
no wonder you couldnt sit for long :o)

Weda, I like that saying a lot but 100 in a car! I dont think so :o)

Ahmed, it seems many Libyans do that from the comments above.
yes it is a common sight with Libyans and Arabs in general.

as I said Libyan females have swam in the Olympics before but I have no idea what the public reaction was. best of luck anyway to our newest swimmer and to the Libyans at the Olympics, we are still waiting for a medal (any will do) :o)

Benghazi Citizen said...

13??that is
Any way,unfortunately this is not an unusual scene in our belovewd libya...a small car pacvked with so many over each others seat builts ,and of my early posts was dedicated to the issue of driving in libya..
About the Libyan swimmer..That's only regret that the suppressive environment in Libya didnt allow talented Libyans to blossom and to be heard...and that the educational system has failed to bring libyans up to the surface of such great events..

dusk till dawn said...

salam A-LY
