Help me out, am I sticking my nose in or should I say sonething? E is a fb friend and my cousins step sister,d is my cousins best mate and fb friend... Saw a conversation today where e asked d for a lift, d asked if she had car seat for her 2 year old and e said "I've got <older childs> booster, he'll be ok on that" d is 18 ish and only just passed her test and the kid going on the booster is a couple of months younger thanmy dd, who is 27 months....
Its illegal (and stupid) right? So should I tell d since its her car,she probably doesn't know since she's young and no kids and she'd get fined/be to blame for an accident... And what should I saw so I'm not being judgy (I am tho lol)
Well, ds was on a high back booster from 26m because he outgrew his baby one so you never know BUT you could say 'watch out guys I heard the police had been spot checking vehicles with kids for correct car seat usage'
You could tell D by personal message that you hope she has replied that she is uncomfortable taking a child not in the legally required seat.
This wouldn't go on D's wall, so E wouldn't be aware of any snitching, and D won't feel under pressure (because she could pretend it was her, D's own idea).
If D has already said yes, you could always jump in again, this time with a public wall post, offering the use of your DD's car seat for the journey, as you know such a small child needs proper protection. Even if it would be inconvenient for them to take you up on it, your concern should shame the mother and get D out of an embarrassing corner. No-one wants to tell a mother she is being reckless, but no-one wants to see a child hurt, either.
That's not to mention the potential for crawling around the car.... You will be doing D a real favour here!
