Okay? Got that? She is not a danger to anyone. Get it? Don't start with me, I used to be a cop and I know what safety is.
So I take it you have a secure cage or something seperating the back seat from the front, because as an ex cop you will know that anything unrestained in the back becomes a missile in an accident, possibly killing those it hits...
There was a graphic depiction of the damage an unbelted rear passenger can have on the front occupant in a documentary the other day - startling!
