This shocking image shows the moment the police found a baby who was trapped in an unsecured car seat in what officers described as & # 39; a very dangerous position & # 39 ;.
The seven-month-old man rode in the back seat of the golden Holden Commadore alongside his 24-year-old mother.
The police stopped the vehicle on the Sturt Highway, 30 km west of Euston in southern New South Wales at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Officers who stopped the unregistered car, driven by a 27-year-old man, say that the baby's car seat was in any case not secured.
The baby was found with the car seat anchor belt over his chest, under his neck.
A driver was charged after a baby was tied up in an unsecured car seat in what the police & # 39; a very dangerous position & # 39; called
The driver received a violation notice for the crime of driving an unrestrained child older than six months and for traveling in an unregistered car.
The mother has not been charged.
Officers replaced the seat with a suitable one for the child's age and gave the mother and baby a lift to the nearest town.
& # 39; Children under the age of six months should be detained in an approved rear-facing restriction & # 39 ;, said a New South Wales Police spokesperson.
& # 39; A child who is properly secured in an approved child car seat is less likely to be killed in a car accident than someone who does not. & # 39;
The incident comes when another driver was caught trying to view the cricket on his cell phone.
His device was attached to the steering wheel while he was doing 96 km / h in a 70 km / h zone on Sunday at 10.10 a.m.
According to police, the 33-year-old had a two-year-old in the back seat who was not reluctant when driving on Cumberland Highway in Smithfield, west of Sydney.
The driver, who is looking at Australia or India, has weakened a total of 24 points during the double qualifying weekend.
He earned eight points for exceeding 20 km / h above the speed limit, ten points for using a mobile phone when that was not allowed and six points for driving a child older than two but less than four, who was not reluctant as directed.
