Provincial police say a man has been charged after he used a case of beer as a substitute for a booster seat for a two-year-old.

OPP say they stopped a sedan on a road in the town of Atwood, Ont., around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

They say officers observed the toddler seated on a 30-can case of beer.

Police say the 22-year-old driver was charged with failing to ensure that a toddler is properly secured in a vehicle.

Police also say family and children services were notified.

WHAT the hell. Why didn’t this officer charge him with having a child under 12 yo in the FRONT seat. Clearly the officer doesn’t know the laws of the road. Parents like this should be charged and thankfully CAS was called. IMHO

@BrokeInOntario: There is no such law. It is strongly recommended that children and all child seats be located put into rear seats, but it is not an absolute requirement. Remember some cars only have two seats.
