What part doesn't he get???

So my husband and brother in law trade cars often since they run a limo company, which means that the carseats have to get moved around ALOT! Well the past couple of days my husband has been in the same car so there hasn't been any switching all he had to do was put the carseats back in and everything would have been fine (the youngest are 2 & 3)... well Tuesday I get a call from him asking if I would get the kids from school, which normally isnt a problem but we had alot of people out at work due to the flu so i was covering for a bunch of different people which included me taking the mail to the post office and drop it off... so I knew I would never make it to them on time... I asked what was going on that he was not able to do it and he said that there really wasn't a good reason he just didnt want to put the careseats in the car?! Red Flag - this means he took them to daycare without them being in a carseat!!!!! The first thing out of my mouth was you better put the carseats in because if something were to happen to them you would feel awful, and I would be extra pissed especially since it was your laziness that caused it!!!! He said he understood and would definitely put them in! So I get home that night and notice that they are still in the same spot in the garage that they were in when i left in the morning! So i walk in yelling at him... again i get the same I understand and i will go put them in before we go anywhere else. Well Yesterday before I left i told him "DO NOT FORGET TO PUT THE CARSEATS IN THE CAR" and got the no problem answer! The kids didnt go to daycare yesterday but they were driven all over town looking at homes with my husband and mother in law... and yes you guessed it NO CARSEATS! I did not notice the carseats when i got home but i did notice they were not in the car this morning... so he and his mother got an earful about if i lose a child or if they are hurt due to them being lazy they will never hear the end of it or i am sure i will end up in prison due to me killing them! What should i do? How would you handle this? I know I am not being over protective since it is against the law for them not to be in a carseat! PLEASE HELP!

I'd be so pissed I would tell him that if it happened again I would call the cops on him. There is no excuse for not putting a child in a car seat.

I would be pissed but I would also just go do it myself so I knew my kids were safe

Wow.  That's pretty sad that the father of two small children doesn't care enough about their safety to take 10 minutes to put in their carseats.  Wow.  Not only that, but their Grandmother was in the car too and didn't have a problem with it.  I don't know what you could say to make them see any clearer that they are risking those kids' lives.  Sad.
