It could be anyone. I assume they shop? Stop at traffic lights? Load into the car beside somebody that can see no car seat? I would ring and then if they ask you just say "why don't you have one yet"? Get one!

That said a decent percentage of our women don't have a car and just walk/taxi/bus to get to places, so I'm somewhat used to people not having a car seat - simply because they don't need one.

My point is that you are told at the hospital that you can't drive your baby in a car without a car seat. If you don't have a car seat you need alternative travel arrangements- it's not like you tell them 'oh well, make sure you hold on tight and you should probs go get a car seat', you tell them they MUST have a car seat to drive with a baby, right?

Report it anonymously. The police don't need to know who you are and I doubt out of everyone in the world your cousin will suspect you. If she does ask you, just deny it if you don't want her knowing and causing drama.

Not putting a child in a car seat is selfish and ridiculous at 1 years of age unless there is a good reason, but I believe it's not your business to do anything about it unless you are close family and would pull them up on those kind of issues without them feeling offended or you feeling awkward then I wouldn't say anything.
I wouldn't report it, maybe there is an issue of financial problems or a legitimate reason... Who knows they'll hopefully get pulled over by the police before someone gets hurt or something.

if something happened and the child was killed/injured, I doubt you'd ever forgive yourself for not doing more.
I think it's your duty as a responsible adult to report it. just ensure its done in a manner that's not traceable to yourself nor will cause conflict within the family.
you're not reporting it to "dob her in", you're doing it to potentially save a child's life.
parents should do everything in their power to protect their kids. when they fail in that duty, it falls to others to step in.

If you are ever in a position to hear an ambo speak on the issue, you will know going to the police is the right thing to do.
