ITA. I wish cops around here would pull people over for the "little" things - what, it's been three, four years since the "no cell handset while driving" law was enacted here, and I STILL see idiots every day yammering away on their : cells and doing 75 on the highway. : But of course the cops aren't gonna see them, 'cause they're going *85* (non-emergency). Argh.
And then I see the unrestrained kids climbing around in cars, the moms driving with their babe in a Bjorn, the carseats that are NOT properly installed and/or buckled (loose straps, chest plate threaded wrong)...
Ugh, I digress. OP - if your H didn't get ticketed, I see nothing wrong with the cop being extra cautious.
But then, 1/2 of my family was involved in a bad accident and I know firsthand the utmost importance of proper restraint (not to mention, smaller kids being in the back seat whenever possible).
I'm in 100% agreement with you on this. My motto, better safe than sorry. They were just doing their job. This is how we reduce the amount of fatalities in children in fatal car crashes.
