Do think a woman who buckles a five month old in the front passenger seat and holds his body to it while driving so he won't fall over is an idiot?

Just looking for some validation here. If you saw this would you call the cops? I'm asking anon because to be completely honest I'm ashamed that I didn't call. I wasn't exactly in a position to be able to...but still. There is a chance I might see her again. Cops or no? Your thoughts please.

  • Yea, total idiot, cops must be called. That baby should be in a carseat no questions asked. That's child endangerment and if she crashes that poor baby becomes a projectile :( calling the cops could save that babies life.

  • Absolutely, call the cops if you ever see it again. And/or get license plate to report it later.

  • Of course that's horrible and yes call the cops but I find it odd that you knew the child's age and exactly what was going on in the car....where you leaning over watching or was this someone YOU know?

  • The age is just a guess. The baby was still having trouble holding his own head up well. The reason I know is because I work in a drive thru as a cashier, so I couldn't help but notice. She was having a hard time counting change while holding the baby to the seat at the same time.
