I'm really tired of this car seat nanny state. When are they going to stop raising the limits?
I understand all the reasons, and I have no objection to these rules as recommendations. But by making this into laws with fines they aren't thinking of the unintended consequences:
- We all have to buy minivans or SUVs in order to have enough room for all the car seats. How much extra gas has been burned due to car seat laws?
- I can't give all the kids a ride home from school in carpool in my car
- Am I supposed to hold a 4'9" stick up against kids like at amusement parks before allowing them in my car?
