So we just got back in town yesterday. We were at the airport and DH went to get the car while DD and I sat with the luggage outside baggage claim. While I was waiting, I noticed a couple walk out with a small baby (maybe 7 months?) in a stroller and a bunch of luggage. Another guy - friend? brother? - picked them up. The two guys loaded the luggage and the woman just got into the backseat with the baby in her lap! NO CARSEAT! And off they went. What?!!? As they drove away I could still see the baby sitting in the woman's lap, so it's not like the guy picking them up had a carseat in the car waiting for them.)
I wondered after the fact if I should have called the police or something? Or is it just people being stupid and let them live with the consequences? I was just shocked. Have you ever seen something similar?? The closest I've heard before is another mom who told me that she would sometimes take her baby out of the car during long car trips. Though my favorite part of that story was that she thought it was okay because her DH "drove like a grandma." Um, there are other drivers and other things that can happen on the road... (But at least this crazy woman HAD a carseat in her car....)
Anyway...just thought i'd share that bit of craziness!
