Pot-smoking US mom drives off with baby on roof

An almost mundane story:

A marijuana-smoking woman was arrested on Saturday in Phoenix after she accidentally drove away with her five-week-old son in a child safety seat on the roof of her vehicle, police said. The baby fell off the car in the middle of an intersection and was found unharmed and strapped into the seat, said Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes.
Yes, quite mundane, but there is a vitally important lesson in it for every young mom: always keep that baby of yours, that apple of your eye in a child safety seat!

The secondary lesson is don't just set the baby seat down on the roof--strap it to the luggage carrier!

Yes, but this shouldn't be mandatory. Long as the kid is in the safety seat, you can do anything you want with it.
