My ex boyfriend just got into a car accident last Wednesday; he wasn't driving. His girlfriend was. Luckily they didn't have my 10-month old with them. My son would have been severely injured.
Well, today, I went outside to get my son from my ex since today was visitation and my ex had the baby's car seat facing forwards. I told my ex that the baby should be facing backwards since he's not a year yet nor is he forty pounds. I told him that he could get in trouble with the law and he was putting my son's life in danger.
He didn't care and told me I was overreacting and he'll 'take the ticket.' Then he sped out of my driveway like a bat out of hell.
I'm worried for my son's safety. If my son would have been in that car when they crashed head-on with a wrongly used car seat; he could have been killed.
Am I right about the car seat direction? Or am I overracting?
