Vent Unrestrained kid and a call to the cops


New member
There was a kid in the car next to me and the two adult ladies in the front were yelling at him and swatting at him. He was maybe 5, if that. He wasn't even in a seatbelt. I watched them for awhile and then decided to call the cops. They must have known I was doing that and made a u turn and sped back the other way. I called the cops and gave a description of the car and occupants, so I'm hoping for he best. I feel guilty though, like maybe I misunderstood the situation:/

don't feel guilty... most likely they were yelling and swatting at him for not wearing a seatbelt and sitting still... and they don't know that the reason this is going on is because he needs to be in a booster seat or carseat.

too bad you couldn't get the license number (it sounds like you didn't)

Don't feel bad ! I'm right there with you today ! Passed a younger dad with his maybe 2 year old DD in a seat with only the harness around her legs she was pulling her self up to stick her head out of the window :( she had such a sweet smile makes me sad to know he doesn't realize the danger she was in.

You did the right thing DH doesn't like when I get involved at all so I've learned it's not worth an argument between us. Otherwise I would have called as well !
