My daughter is 5 years old and is approximately 42 pounds. Her mother and i are not on good terms.
You are absolutely correct to be concerned over this imminent danger. The mother would be breaking the law, and authorities take this misconduct very seriously. There is nothing wrong with you reporting it. Your daughter is being placed in a very dangerous situation if the mother is breaking the law and allowing her to ride without an appropriate car seat. This is an immediately solution that may force the mother to correct her illegal behavior, but you may want to use to this evidence to alter any previous court order for your child's well-being. It may be good for you to document the behavior with video or photos of her conduct. I wish you the best.
