Toddler Falls Out Of Car On Highway

Talk about a lesson on why you should make sure your child's car seat is properly strapped into your vehicle and you have child locks on the car door. As CityNews reports, a 2-year-old Toronto girl is lucky to be alive after falling out of a car onto a highway.

According to Sgt. Larry Zimmerman with Traffic Services, while traveling down a highway, "a child in the back seat was playing with the door handle and managed to open the door," and then all that was needed to push the car seat out of the vehicle was gravity. "It's pretty obvious here that the child's seat was not strapped in or it wouldn't have come out of the car," he says. The toddler was not injured but was taken to a hospital for evaluation. Police say an investigation is ongoing.

Might be an old car they didn't have child locks back when.I remember a few of my kids would undo their car seat belts and id have to pull over and put them back.Finally I got so sick of it that I improvised and used a belt to secure the car seat belt where they could not remove it.

Humor - Probably someone so full of "White Guilt" after Obama's speech last week that they were afraid to lock doors in fear of offending some black person.

I can't even imagine how they stress out now. I'd sit in the back with the kid.
