I don`t get why everyone freaks out over pictures of kids in the back of trucks. Obviously there is no room for them inside the trucks when they put them there. If that`s the only car available, how else are you going to get them around? I guess it`s my travels overseas that`s made me less sensitive about stuff like this as I`ve seen bad and this sure isn`t it in this picture.

I`m going to go against the hysteria and say that I don`t see a problem here. Sure it`s unusual to see this, but it`s not necessarily unsafe. If the seats are secured, and the children are strapped in, there`s no harm here. Lots of kids have ridden many miles in the backs of pickups, myself included. This is a case of people wanting to cocoon their children in bubble wrap 24/7. Let`s take a deep breath, here people and relax.

Back in the 70`s, us kids never wore seat belts in the car while my old man smoked with the windows rolled up and driving half pissed drunk.
So I really don`t pity these kids, they have fresh air, car seats and the driver prob ain`t drunk.

[quote]Lionhart: you don`t know what you`re talking about. Stop talking[/quote]

Made perfect sense to me. There`s a reason why they don`t have seat-belt positions in the back of pick-up trucks (sorry Lion, that`s a "Ute" to you, you crazy Ozzy bastard). It`s because that bay isn`t meant for people. Never mind infants.

Also, I`d like to pick-up for Lionhart (see what I did there?) as both he and I are fathers of small children. I contend that when it somes to child safety, both he and I know pretty damn well what we`re talking about. And this ain`t safe.

You`re talking about seats properly mounted and designed for the task. Notice in your video how far the rear-facing seat moves in order to absorb and dissipate the kinetic energy. Now look at the photo`s on this post and ask how the hell those seats are going to absorb anything at all? Duuuh.

That`s really unsafe. And going on the freeway just makes this even worse.

Lion, you`re an idiot who knows nothing about child restraints. Children under 8kgs MUST be in rear-facing car seats. Watch this clip, it shows the difference between being in a rear facing and a forward facing seat in a crash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKIeExpDL...

OK, here`s a classic example of the average human being no more intelligent than a chimpanzee. PRESUMABLY, she thinks they`re safe because the seats are fastened somehow and the dohspawn are belted into them. Except they`re facing backwards, which means in any accident or even heavy braking, their spines will snap like a twig. Every car/van which comes out with a swivelling seat says "Seat must face forward when vehicle is in motion". Why? Because the human spine is designed to bend forward with the momentum of a sudden stop, but it cannot bend the other way AT ALL. So even ignoring accidents, every time this moron brakes for an intersection, he is doing mild but permanent back injury to the dohspawn. Frikkin tard.

Because, of course, no-one`s car is ever hit by another car.

Do you really think that a seat stuck in the bed of a pickup is no more dangerous than a seat inside a car?

Sure, it won`t matter in a major crash, but there`s a lot of mid-range crashing, like a 30mph sideswipe at a junction.

I guess if they`re very well strapped down then this isnt too bad. They`re right behind the roll bar so I guess its like a backwards convertable ride.

But if it wasn`t a one-off they`d get a new car, which means they probably aren`t tied down, which means fail.

hahaha. thats great. I wouldn`t say she`s a bad parent only because she at least the kids are in the car seat.

I know at my school (which is in North Central PA) you can have people in the bed of a truck as long as you don`t exceed 35 mph (or so I`m told). So this really doesn`t phase me at all. As long as the kids are secure, I don`t see a problem.
