A friend of mine was at my house the other day and she brought her kids with her. Her youngest is only 2 and she told me he usesa booster seat. I asked her if he meets the requirements and she laughed it off saying, "I don't know." This is her kid we're talking about. She is not the safest driver. She has been in 4 or 5 different accidents over the past 2 years. I am concerned for her son's safety. I told her that there are requirements for a reason, but she shrugged it off. What should I do? She is too lazy to put him in a correct car seat. I know for a fact that he doesn't meet the requirements. Guys I don't want to get her in trouble. I'm concerned for her son. Oh, and when her ex takes the kids to church, none of them have seats. The oldest is 8 and may not need one. The others are 5 and 2. The 5 year old is the same size as my 5 year old and she has to be in a car seat.

If the booster has a back, then they can be as little as 30 pounds, which isn't much of a stretch for a 2 year old. At least she is putting him in something. I used to live in CA and OMG, did you know that 18 people can fit in a 4 seater as long as half of them are little. LOL Sorry, I know this isn't a joke, but really. Is the kid almost 3, or just turned 2? Is it a big child, or a little one? Does she have access to a different car seat? People make choices for all types of reasons, and just because 1% of America thinks children should be rear facing until they can drive themselves, doesn't make it better. Just another choice. Some states still have the 4 years or 40 pounds, some are 4 years and 40 pounds or 6 and 60 or 8 and 80. If you were that worried, I think you would have said something by now.
