Not just that but the recommended age to forward face the carseat is now two years old. You wouldn't believe how many parents I see who can't wait to flip them around early. I believe in doing what's safest for your child, not the most convenient for the parent. I guess it's better than the bums I usually see who have no kids fastened into anything and smoking in the car.

And do you have small children? Who are you to care if someone smokes in the car? I agree with the seats, and the rules for them, its common sense. It's the life if your child, its only stupid people that don't strap their kids in properly. You need to stop being so judgemental, you are not perfect either.

Yep, you can go to the barracks and ask. You don't need an appointment, just walk in and ask the officer at the window. If that officer can't do it, they'll find one.

Its sad that this past week I have seen 3 children all under the age of 6 sitting in the front seat of a car. I have seen 2 or 3 children in the back seat not buckled just turned around, watching behind them, bouncing, and sticking their head out the window. Hello! Is there anything upstairs? You wreck your kid is going through the windshield....If in a wreck your kid is going to get seriously hurt. Do these parents not care???

I think you can also try any fire company/EMT station as well. That might be easier to get to than a PSP barracks.

I've also seen numerous instances where small children aren't even in a carseat, let alone strapped in properly. I guess that's what happens when you cram 3 people plus kids in the backseat. I'd state an obvious observation, but you know the last thing I would want to do is offend someone.

My generation lived without seatbelts, lead soldiers and spankings.

Did you know that when traffic safety measures are put in place people will find ways of pushing them to the limit making any benefit moot?
Make safer cars and roads and people drive worse. Seems to be an inherent human trait.

Not every officer is trained in installing car seats properly. When I was preparing to have my first child I went around to all the local barracks looking to make sure I had mine right and they told me that I would need someone who is specially trained in that. I know Trooper Morris from the Dubois barracks is, but it's hard to get a hold of him.

Yes, I do have small children, not that it's any of your business. But then again, you see nothing wrong with someone smoking with their kids in the car so I don't really care about your worthless opinion. I feel bad for the children of some of these "stupid people", yours is probably one of them.

So the cops don;t know how to install them correctly but are running check points to make that common folk have installed them properly?
And we have statistics based on these "safety" checks?

That is stupid on so many levels.

I respect what you're saying because I do think that things were probably a lot simpler then, but you can't really use that as an argument. We, as a society, know better than that now and it's not an excuse anymore. If we always did what our grandfathers did then we'd all be stuck in the 1800's, never evolving and learning.

Yep, pretty much! I have never had a check point though where the seat is checked, just made sure we were all fastened in the car. Have you? Just curious, because if so I am calling up someone and bitching them out!

I can use what ever I want for an arguement. Please read Dr. Wood's work on the Malthus-Bosrup ratchet effect.
