Johannesburg - A taxi driver was caught with 62 passengers in his 21-seater taxi, near Buffelspoort, North West, on Thursday, the province's public safety department said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Lesiba Moses Kgwele said he was taking three teachers and 59 schoolchildren to the Kloof Waters Intermediate School, outside Marikana.

"This means that the taxi [was] loaded almost three times over it's legal limit," Kgwele said.

The 34-year-old taxi driver was arrested at 07:30 on the old Pretoria-Rustenburg road.

He did not have a driver's licence, a public driving permit or an operating licence.

He was taken to the Marikana Police Station and was expected to appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court later on Thursday, Kgwele said.

He said the North West provincial road traffic management unit had been focusing on overloaded school transport and illegal operations as part of its "Operation Juggernaut" crackdown.

Can only happen in Africa, how the hell do you get 62 people in a vechile for 21 even if they are kids.

Milatry forces should get South African taxi drivers to transport troops into battle, think how much money you can save on armoured personal carriers if you only need 1 in 3 of them.
