Police in Ontario have charged a driver after they saw that he used a case of beer as a child’s booster seat.
The 22-year-old driver was charged with failing to ensure a toddler is properly secured after police near Kitchener noticed the child was riding atop of a blue case of beer cans.
The Ontario Provincial Police made an example of the driver on Twitter, though refraining from identifying the offender.
In Canada, children under 40 pounds need a car seat, while those under 80 pounds and under eight years old require a booster seat.
According to CTV News, a proper child seat was brought to the location and Family & Children’s Services was made aware of the situation.
