Britney Spears, who earlier this month made the mistake of driving with her infant son in her lap, is made an example of what you should never do by transportation Secretary Norman Mineta.
Mineta marked the beginning of Child Passenger safety Week by saying: "Recent photos of Britney Spears driving with her infant son on her lap are troubling. And while Ms. Spears has acknowledged her mistake, her actions still send the wrong message to millions of her fans."
Spears claimed last week that she was confronted by aggressive paparazzi and had to take drastic measures to get her baby and herself out of harms way. Britney later admitted, in an interview with Access Hollywood: "I made a mistake and so it is what it is, I guess."
Norman Mineta also made the comment that: "Each year, over 53,000 kids are needlessly injured in crashes. If all of these children had been riding in a booster seat, it's possible that thousands of them would have escaped their crashes virtually unharmed."
