This, from today's Miami Herald, makes you sick. The little girl was 9 months old. The mother survived the single vehicle crash, a Volvo no less, with "non-life-threatening injuries." Among other things, the article states,
[Florida] State law requires that all children 5 and younger ride in a crash-tested, federally approved child restraint device. For children 3 and younger, the device has to be a carrier or child seat.
So much for Florida law.
