If you are thinking of bypassing these regulations for a however short time, please remember that car crashes in the U.S. are the top cause of death for people ages 3 through 19. Proper use of safety seats and seat belts can prevent that, and can boost your case should your car accident ever come to litigation. And if your case does come to litigation, make sure you are represented by a qualified professional with experience in this particular field.
