Quoting *Mrs. Mallard*:" they have a big SUV though. so i understand if you dont have the room, but they do have the room. She is just uneducated about carseat safety."
Some people just don't care too, like my husband's family. I don't think I have ever seen his younger brother in a car seat( I have known him since he was 2) and he is going to be 7 in a few weeks.
I am sure carseat save a lot more kids now then when they had none. My grandma talked about when my mom was born and she just held her on the drive home. Sort of scary but I would love to just hold my baby in my arms on the drive home
