Re: Breath taking video of what happens to children NOT in carseats!

I saw that on the news last night. It's amazing the child wasn't hit by the oncoming traffic. Are there child restraint laws in Russia? I would assume/hope there are and hope these parents are in the minority.

When she grows up she can say "I was never in a car seat and I'm fine!"

These parents are most definitely NOT in the minority. I have two boys adopted from Russia and though there are laws (they actually went into effect while I was there (or perhaps right before I got there in 2008) that kids must be in a "child's seat" or something very, very vague like that. In 2008, it was definitely not enforced. I was adopting a 16 month old baby, and in the first town we were in, there were no car seats (heck there weren't even seat belts in all of the cars we rode in), so he sat in my lap. In Moscow, I was offered a booster (LBB, similar to the cheap Graco that Target sells)...for my 16 lb 16 month old! I opted to hold him instead, figuring there was no way I could keep him seated in that seat, and hoping that I could keep him safer in my lap. I have (in the 5 trips and 2 months I've spent in Russia) never seen one carseat in use in Russia.

That video just made me physically ill and super pissed off all at the same time! WTF is wrong with parents. Laws or not, its common sense. Poor baby, so glad they are ok, but dang!
