Hey Station Wagon poster...

There was a post recently about a station wagon that was impounded because of a sickly person laying in the back ("passenger in trunk"). I have been informed that the post was lost due to technical reasons. Can the original poster (OP) please PM me. There is a VIP interested in this story.

They all entered and my sister, because she wasn't feeling very well (and they had 6 people in a car that had room for 5) decided to lay down in the back of the station wagon. As soon as the driver started the car and started to pull away an officer pulled them over.

The officer charged the driver with stunt driving, suspended his license for 7 days gave him a $2000 fine and the car was impounded for a week. Does this seem like a reasonable charge for the offence? "Driving with a person in the trunk" is actually stated in the Stunt Driving section of the higway traffic act, but I would think it there would have to be some other activity that would lead an officer to come up with Stunt driving and not just a seatbelt infraction. Is the back of a station wagon considered the trunk?

Help me out, is this something that the driver should fight?

BelSlySTi, how did you get the mculham's original post? We are trying to get it from the google cache but they don't have the snapshot we need...
