    Some people do get it.

    Gave my son's friend a ride today. He's 8.5. Dad wanted to give me a booster. YAY!!! Of course I had an extra but so thrilled that a) he uses one in their car, and b) they care enough to try to give it to anyone who transports him even if it was a 10 minute drive on slow roads!
    Mom is a PT so perhaps that helps.

    Not really expecting responses on this one...just thought I would mention a bright spot with all the mis-use we see.

    It's always nice when we meet someone IRL who gets it!

    Yay! That's how I felt when I noticed my neighbors 7 year old is in a HBB. I've seen maybe one kid in my area who RF passed 1. Most kids past the age of 4 have no seats at all. I'm no longer surprised when kids aren't in any seatbelt at all...
