"Mom arrested for driving with kids on top of SUV in inflatable pool"

No, not Florida!

' "During the course of the investigation it was learned that Yeager drove into town to inflate the pool at a friends’ house and had her two juvenile daughters ride inside of the empty pool to hold it down on their drive home," police said.

Yeager was taken to the Dixon Police Department and posted bond.

Dixon police later tweeted an image of the SUV with the pool, saying, "Having your children sit in an inflatable pool on top of your car while driving will get you arrested." '

Maybe she just wanted to drive in the car pool lane.

The Darwin Award has been stymied for now. But, that mom is a prime target for the award in the future.

Drives an Audi and can't afford an air pump. Amazon $25.00 and I am sure where ever she bought the pool has something similar.

...

I see many people buy cars more expensive than they can afford and then cut corners here and there. I would not be surprised if this is what happened here.

The friend is also guilty for letting it drive away like that after inflating the pool.

How foolish. Much safer to also fill the pool with water while she was there, then the water would have held it down.

No one needs to comment for a day or two. That's so witty, everything else next to it will pool in comparison.

Why the class-based slam aimed at the mother? As though rich people don't do stupid things, or aren't cheap? She looks like a well-to-do white lady from her booking photo.

Because that's what people do.

Wraps it up, tidily.

At least she wasn't branded as a soccer mom.


How foolish.

At least.

The kids should have been inside the car.

However, as a kid, I would loved to 'car pool'.


Much safer to also fill the pool with water while she was there, then the water would have held it down.

Safer for the kids, absolutely.

But the pool probably wouldn't have stayed in place.

The kids' weight stayed in one place. Water would have shifted and sloshed with acceleration, braking, and turning.

It would have never made it home, and ended up somewhere else it shouldn't have.

Maybe you are right. Then making stupid thing like these makes it even worse.

now, if it were me.... (ahem) I would have flipped the pool over, and asked the kids to hold onto it. from inside the car. (yes, I know about the wind thing, but we are talking stupid human tricks here, so why not?)
