Does anyone else think it's silly to keep kids in carseats until they are ALMOST 5 FEET TALL?

Seriously, they will get out of the carseats just in time to learn to drive.

What about folks who don't grow taller than the legal height limit, do they stay in the carseat their whole lives?

Why isn't someone standing up and saying that this is silly?

    Yest I think it is silly unless they weigh 60 lbs. If they are over 90 lbs and 5 feet tall they definitely need to be out of a car seat. My mother has been 4'10'' for 50+ years maybe she should be in a car seat. LOL

  • I thought it was according to weight, not height. That certainly makes more sense.

    I was tall for my age at six...I don't remember sitting in a carseat after I was five.

    Of course, they are a lot more strict now, so who knows.

    If that's true, yes, it's very silly.

    If a child is less than 5 years old and is 5 ft tall, you need to go on the Murray Show

    you are being silly

    can you imagine a 15 year old in a car seat?

    being dropped off in front of the school.

    your kids would never speak to you again.
