  • child endangerment and the officer would hold the car until the parents could get a car seat to put the child in and possibly even call dhr on the parent and have them investigated.

  • I don't know! Recently here a 6 week old Baby was Killed when hit from behind. A car hit A Horse & buggy. They horse & buggy driver's don't believe in infant Baby seats. So I don't know! All I know is A 6 week old precious Baby lost her Life! Now that's Truly Sad. I wonder if there is laws for horse & buggy slow moving vehicles on the roads & highways??

  • where im at its considered child abuse but yet people dont put their kids in booster seats...a friend stopped using car seats when her kiddos turned 3 and that are very petite kids the youngest who is four is the same size as my 2 yr old...her excuse its it takes too much time to strap them in, the law says until child is 4'11 they must be in car or booster seat....what is also sad is when i was at wic i seen a mom who just stuck the infant seat in the back without strapping it in(the seat) m like wow that kinda defeats the purpose
