LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – A viewer couldn’t believe her eyes as she was a passenger in a car on a local freeway.
It’s a little hard to tell from video sent in by Hilary F but after zooming in, it sure looks like there’s something – or someone – moving around in that back seat.
In a second video, there’s no mistaking a young person obviously not in a car seat – even waving at the camera passing by.
Here’s the law: any child less than 6 years of age who is less than 57 inches tall must ride in an approved child restraint system. Children under 2 years old must ride in a rear-facing safety seat in the back seat of the vehicle.
Hilary, there’s no way of knowing if the people driving those cars will ever see this story, but – please! – for the rest of us: don’t ever put a kid’s life in danger like that.
Buckle up, drive carefully – and, please put down that phone! When you write in to join the “Driving You Crazy” conversation, photos and video obviously help tell your story, but not taken while you’re driving!
