A Canadian driver was charged after police discovered he was using a case of beer as a toddler’s booster seat during a traffic stop.

The 22-year-old driver was charged with failing to ensure a child was properly seat-belted.

Ontario Provincial Police said the 2-year-old child was not injured.

A proper booster seat was brought for the child and Family & Children’s Services was notified, CTV News reported.

In Canada, children under 40 pounds require a forward-facing car seat and children under 8 years old, 80 pounds and 4-foot-9 require a booster seat.

Unfortunately for this driver, a 30-pack case of beer doesn’t count as a booster seat.
