I work with a girl whose 19 month old uses a seat belt.
I picked up AJ from school last year and watched one of the moms from his class plop her 18 mos old in the back seat and just put a seatbelt around her. Of course she had to put the shoulder belt behind her, so what was the point really? Her 5yo didn't have a seat either even though law here is 6. It's sad really that people live in that much denial that they think it would never happen to them. Have them talk to other parents who thought that before their kids were killed and see how they feel.

ERF is quite uncommon here. Most of my friends have been bugging me about turning DS forward facing since he was about 15 months. He is 34 months and 33 pounds now, so we just turned him (hit carseat limits for RF) two weeks ago.
