Mom Straps Gas Can Into Car Seat Instead Of Toddler

A Denver woman was pulled over by police for violating state seat belt laws. She had secured a gas can into the car seat, leaving her diapered son sitting next to it without a seat belt.

The Denver Post reports:

Veteran Aurora police and highway officials were stunned by a photo taken during a recent traffic stop, which shows a diapered toddler who is not properly restrained, sitting next to a gas can belted into a baby seat.

“This could be one of the extreme incidents we’ve ever seen,” said Aurora Police spokesman Frank Fania.

The photo was taken during a recent “Click It or Ticket” campaign conducted by the Colorado State Patrol and local law enforcement.

The car was stopped May 30 by an officer doing improper turn enforcement near East Iliff Avenue and Tower Road. He found that none of the occupants were using seat belts.

A 14-year-old was also a passenger in the car. The female driver, the mother of children, was cited for no proof of insurance and three counts of seat belt violations, Fania said.
