I know.
Thanks for bringing it to other peoples attention.

I cannot believe the news at the moment. All this talk of panic buying, shops running out of supplies of booster seats etc.

ARE these people real, do they not have any consideration for the safety of their children. They obviously are more concerned about getting a 30 fine than protecting their kids, otherwise they would already have seats for them.
Just because their kids appear big enough not to need a seat they don't use one. Any person, even an adult should use a booster seat if they are too short for the belt to fit properly.

Any parent/grandparent with any consideration for their family and friends should already be using proper child restraints.

I cannot believe the number of people who don't bother fitting booster cushions in the car for older children.

You cannot put a price on human life.

In case you haven't noticed, this makes my blood boil.

For f*** sake a booster cushio only costs 10.
Are kids are 7 & 9 and they always take a booster cushion with them whenever they have a ride in a friends/relatives car. We will not let them ride without one. We also always ask their friends to have a booster cushion if we take them anywhere.

Sorry folks, it takes a lot for me to get wound up, but the safety of my kids and family takes preference over everything else.
