I've observed that many in this area, including school personnel, don't recognize the laws as they pertain to children being restrained and, of course, there are those who choose to ignore it even if they are aware. For starters, children are not supposed to be in the front seat until they are 12 years of age, and they are supposed to be restrained in the back seats. I've seen many, many instances of the front seat law being violated as well as the seatbelt law. I even watched a woman in a Suburban pull out of Wal-Mart with her toddler (couldn't have been 2, w/ pacifier in mouth) standing up in the front seat, with the window down at that. The child appeared to be barely old enough to walk. It would not take much of a sudden movement to see her tragically injured or killed. If you want to ignore the law for your own safety that's one thing, but if you ignore it when it comes to your children, it just goes to show that no matter what you say, you would NOT do anything in the world to protect your children. And by the way, in case you didn't know this, people DO notice.
