A high school student in South Africa stole a bus just so he could arrive on time for his final-year mathematics examination, South African media reported.
The student, 20-year-old Le-Aan Adonis, told eNCA that he had no choice than to get behind the wheels of the bus when the driver failed to show up.
Adonis not only drove himself, but carried other students who said they trusted him to convey them safely to school because they believed he could handle a bus.
The ad-hoc bus driver was however unable to move the bus to school as he was stopped by a traffic officer a short distance from his school.
He was immediately fined 5,000 rand ($361) by the traffic officer in a village in the Western Cape province, where he was stopped.
Reports also say that Adonis is likely to face disciplinary action from his school.
However, he has already been promised free legal representation and donations to help off-set his fine.
He arrived for the exam on time and sat for it.
