Would you/should you report someone for having a child in a car who is unrestrained?

I was driving behind a car for about a mile tonight. Two women in the front, a boy in the back of about 5. Who was hanging out of the back window. Not just his head, his whole upper body

I wrote down their licence plate number. Should I report them? Would the police care?

Bump. I think I need to call them sooner rather than later if at all.

Definitely. Some people are just gobsmackingly stupid.

Yes absolutely. I did just this about a parent at my daughter's school. The police agreed to send a patrol car around during drop off / pick up time. Never actually saw any police at school (but I'm not there for every drop off and pick up) - however, the offending parent now delivers the child on foot after months of squeezing too many children into a car with too few car seats.

Ooh I just spoke to a woman who was very keen to have the details. Thanks. I was so cross! If I'd been stopped behind them at the lights, I would have got out and had a word. Stupid stupid people The woman was a bloody awful driver too
