    Maybe you could pass this on (taken from Kidsafe WA fact sheet:

    "In Western Australia, the leading cause of death and the third most frequent cause of hospitalisation for children aged 0-14 years is transport related injury (2000-2008WA)
    On average, 149 children (less than 16 years) are killed or seriously injured and about 221 will present to the Emergency Department of Princess Margaret Hospital as a result of injuries received as passengers in a car crash (2007 RRC & 2011PMHIS)."

    Also there is a $500 fine and loss of 4 demerit points if he is caught.

    And it is simply IDIOTIC and just unbelievable. I would go crazy if my DH did that with my DD. Hope you can get through to him. Maybe tell daycare and see if they can chat to him too.

    Isn't it illegal? Why would you risk your child's life?? I would be furious if my DH did that.

    There's man like that in the town where I live. He used to not worry about restraints on short trips. He now carries his child everywhere instead. He had an accident 300m from his home. His son was badly injured and only just survived. The child will now never walk or talk, and is very very disabled. The father will never walk again, his wife left him and took the other kids and he was charged by the police.

    Your hubby is a moron. Good drivers are involved in accidents where they are killed and injured all the time. Bad drivers hit them!

    You could tell him my story. I am an advanced driving instructor and drive like I am instructing every day.
    6 months ago I was going to my local child care centre to pick up an enrollment pack. Whilst waiting to turn in I was hit from behind at at least 70 km/h, although my wheels were straight, from the angle I was hit I was then pushed into oncoming traffic and hit again at 70km/hr. I DID NOTHING WRONG!!!
    My then 6mo DS was in the back in his RF seat. We both escaped major injury, had he been FF he would not have survived. My car was. Complete mess and written off.
    Should I have had your husbands attitude and put him in the front seat he would have been completely crushed!
    That seat has 75% chance of severely injuring or killing an adult, let alone a child.
    I'm going to be blunt, your husband needs to grow the frig up! Child car seat safety is a great passion of mine, our babies are precious cargo and no one has the right to disregard their well being. Especially a father. If your sons own father won't look out for him, who will?

    Quite seriously he would be a xdh with that attitude. I would rather bring my son up living apart from DH than not at all.

    This is what ild do if my DP did anything like that. But he understands safety and that he is not to risk out children. He loves them to much. Kinda sounds like yours is just to lazy to strap him in.

    But he is a twiiiit for doing that and ild leave him if I was in your possi. Who's to say he hasn't done it before and will continue doing it even after you reading him all our responses

    Vic Roads Car Restraint Laws

    more from Vic Govt

    Youtube explaining new child restraint laws and why children up to 7 years of age must be properly restrained (good example using crash test dummies)

    Toni's Story (and they were following the LAW at the time)

    Belle's Story, which led to Isabelle's Regulations. She WAS in a car seat in the back seat, but she was only using an adult seatbelt. If that can happen to a nearly 4 year old, imagine what sitting in the front with only an adult seat belt can do to a 21 month old.

    OP, I'm very sorry for you. It seems to me that your DH does not value the life of his son the way he ought to. If he thinks losing a child is funny... then... I have no words.

    Just thought I would add: I don't follow the law on this because I am a woman and I do everything I am told- I have faults and probably break the law regularly.

    I follow the law on this because I value my children's life more than my own. I would throw myself in front of a train for them and I don't know of any decent parent who wouldn't do the same.

    I'm struggling to come up with words also. The life of his flesh and blood is at stake every single time he's not restrained properly

    I have a husband that can be fairly immature at times (that a whole other discussion) but he always straps DD in to "my" standard. He even calls it that. I'm pretty anal about it I admit.

    Tell you what, get your husband to go to the local ambulance station (or cop shop if brave enough) and get them to tell him how a child fairs after not being restrained in a car properly in a car accident.
