I have belted in an infant seat. Not like that though, I've done it rear facing with the belt actually through the slots on the sides.

That's what those side thingies are for. To use the belt but that car seat is not properly installed. It's not supposed to be forward facing.

People are idiots who don't read the car seat manual.

I've belted the seat in too. But it was done properly. I see so many people forward facing infant carriers. And belting in seats that shouldn't be belted in.

People are bad at following instructions. Almost every pic of kids in car seats online that I see the kids are improperly restrained. The number of people who don't put their kids in car seats at all is even worse

Well, I have seen SO many people riding with babies that age in their laps in the front seat that I will almost indorse this. I really had no idea so many people we so damn ignorant or maybe they just don't care. I haven't decided which. I had a girl come through and she was driving and I asked her how old her baby was that her boyfriend had lying in his lap, 5 weeks. 5 damn weeks. They had an empty car seat in the back. There was a toddler standing in the back and another child slumped over taking a nap... At least this idiot tried.

Is that baby forward facing in a seat meant to rear face? Yeah, not safe at all.
