(Auto News) Ala. woman lets daughter ride in box on top of van

By no1camaro

ALBERTVILLE, Ala. – An Alabama woman has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child after police say she let her daughter ride in a cardboard box on top of their van. Albertville Police spokesman Sgt. Jamie Smith said the 37-year-old woman was arrested Sunday after police received a call about a minivan on a state highway with a child riding on top.

Smith said the woman told police the box was too big to go inside the van, and that her daughter was inside the box to hold it down.

Smith said the mother told officers it was safe because she had the box secured to the van with a clothes hanger.

The 13-year-old daughter wasn't harmed and was turned over to a relative. A jail worker said the mother was out on bond Monday.

It's because of people like this mom that we have to have laws in place to tell us we have to wear seat belts. She is probably also the reason McDonald's has to have the word "hot" on their coffee cups!

Hang that mom by her thumbs and take her license away. She doesn't deserve the right to have kids.
