Someone posted this on Facebook. There are so many things wrong with this picture! Chest clip, coat, twisted strap, straps above shoulders... I feel like I need to say something, but I don't know the person that well.... WWYD?

If you aren't afraid to piss them off, say something for sure. Maybe a private message so they don't feel as embarrassed?
I say stuff sometimes, and ignore others. It sucks people are so ignorant.

I'd inform them gently and kindly. :). Though if she's forward facing, the straps do need to be at or above the shoulders.

Send a message. I have pictures that look unsafe because I took them before buckling, but that's buckled with twisted straps, so I don't think that's the case.

I'd definitely send a message. Some people really don't know. My parents raised two kids and used car seat with both of us, but the first time my dad put my oldest in the car seat he did it wrong like in the pic. He said he thought it didn't matter as long as the straps were tight enough.

I have found saying something to someone about carseat safety never ends well
