My friend keeps on driving with her baby on the passenger seat not wearing any kind of protection. Sometimes they drive really recklessly putting the life of the 13 month old kid in danger.

  • So call the cops when she is riding around like that. You can't fix stupid, but sometimes you can put it in jail.

  • Call the police or CPS. You can't let this one pass because if what you said is true, the child could be seriously injured or killed.

  • What's the point of posting this here? Why don't you call the cops?

    Did I miss the memo that we are now Cafemom Police???

  • So next time she leaves the house call the cops on her.
    Seems logical, right?

  • Call the cops next time you see her do this. I saw an old neighbor leave without strapping her infant in a car seat ad they will come. The sad part was she would throw the car seat in the bed of the truck and then hold the kid .

  • That's what CPS is for. Of course you will need evidence.

  • How many times have you seen this happen and what have you done to try and prevent it from continuing to happen?

    Answer by virginiamama71 at 9:03 AM on Jun. 24, 2013

  • I've only seen her once. But another friend said that she does it more often. I called 911 but that didn't help. I tried telling her the consequences but all she said was that she was the parent and that I need to relax. When I was talking to the another friend she told me that even the husband has done it and driving fast. She also said that the mother also tried doing it in her car but she didn't let her do it.
