Re: Just Call Me the Car Seat Nazi

un-flippin'-believable. I noticed someone driving yesterday with a toddler standing between the front and backseat. They were going the opposite direction otherwise I would have taken the license plate number and called the cops too. Way to go for doing something instead of just being ticked off but not acting.

Re: Just Call Me the Car Seat Nazi

"I can't afford a carseat" is a load of bull. I don't know about other states, but in SD, if you qualify for medicaid, foodstamps, etc. you automatically qualify for a free carseat, and somebody to show you how to install it correctly. I think the qualifications must be pretty loose, cuz my sis has installed free carseats in some pretty high end vehicles. If nothing else, you can RENT one from the hospital for pretty darned cheap, too.

Re: Just Call Me the Car Seat Nazi

i don't know how anyone can afford to risk their child's life...what if the child was maimed, paralysed, blinded....BURNED....

there is a special ring of h*ll for people who don't care about keeping their babies safe.

can you imagine...

Mommy, why don't my legs work?
well sweetie you were in a car accident where you were thrown from the car into oncoming traffic and you were run over when you were two.

But mommy, why didn't you put me in a seat belt or car seat?

I just thought that money was better spent on beer, sweetie. Now do you want me to push your wheelchair at your prom?

Re: Just Call Me the Car Seat Nazi

The same thing happened to me last week!! It was an older child, but still should have been in a booster. The mom didn't even make him put on a seatbelt!! Of course it was one of those days I forgot my cell phone. They were going the same direction as me and I just kept stewing more and more as I watched this kid seat hopping throughout the ride. At a stop light he started hanging out the window!! So I beeped the horn to get his attention, put on the meanest "mommy's mad" face I could muster, and hand signaled him to turn his butt around and click his seatbelt!! Amazingly, he promptly did just that. My kids were like "Wooooah!!" and busted up laughing. The kid looked back one more time and I gave him "the look" again and shook my finger at him. That was probably the most discipline he'd received in his entire life!!

Re: Just Call Me the Car Seat Nazi

Good mama. I hate hate hate seeing babies not in car seats. I've "tattled" a few times too. And darn it, it feels good!!!!
Reminds me of the other day in our car line at my oldest's elementary school....hand hanging out of car with cigarette, then teenage girl gets out of backseat teeny baby in arms, and two kids get in from the school. No way there was a carseat in there, not enough room. That poor baby, smoked on and not carseated.

Re: Just Call Me the Car Seat Nazi

Is what is really sad too, here there is a law if ALL seatbelts are being used then a child can be without a seat belt and there is no tickets or anything they can do. I HATE seeing kids not buckled, it makes me so mad.
