There Were Eight In The Car And The Little One Said

Question:

We are going to Disneyland Paris and we have a family car of seven but we have a family of eight. Can we put our 4 year-old on our lap going from U.K to Disneyland Paris through Euro tunnel?

Thank you

Emma Says:

I’m afraid that whilst you are driving in the UK you could be at risk of an allegation of driving an overloaded car which carries 3 penalty points.

Sorry but it is a risk if the car is only designed for 7 and I do see the police prosecute these cases.
