The 22-year-old Canadian received a hefty fine because of a box of beer in the car, but not because he drank it before or while driving. The fact is that he used a box with 30 banks as a child seat.

A traffic police patrol in the Canadian province of Ontario caught up and stopped a passing car, noticing a small child in the cabin without a child seat. This was especially suspicious given the fact that the clock was 2:30 in the morning. It turned out that a 22-year-old man from the county of Perth, instead of a child seat, adapted a case of beer, which he bought at the store: he put a cardboard box with 30 cans in the front seat as a booster and put a 2-year-old son on it. Attaching it, however, with a seat belt.

Fortunately, they did not get into an accident and the child was not injured, but the police did not convince and they fined the careless father for violating the rules for transporting children. In the province of Ontario, all children under eight years of age and under who weigh less than 80 pounds and are under four feet and nine inches tall must be transported using special restraints. After issuing the receipt, the police brought a child seat and lent it to the driver so that he could take his son home according to the established rules and no longer put the child in danger.
