Excuse us, but Queen of Snapchat and Instagram Kim Kardashian may be in trouble with the law.
We think… maybe.
You see, the 36-year-old uploaded a Facebook image of her 18-month-old son, Saint, in the car over the weekend, and it’s caused quite the tizzy.
Here’s the photograph in question:
Once you stop cooing over how freakin’ cute the youngest member of the Kardashian West clan is, something else becomes apparent: Saint is in a front-facing seat.
Presuming the photograph was taken in Kardashian’s hometown of Los Angeles, California, the businesswoman and mum-of-two is actually breaking a new piece of the state’s road safety legislation. That is, that children under the age of two must always travel in a rear-facing seat.
But wait – there’s a catch.
The law, which came into action on the 1st of January this year, states all children under two must travel in a rear-facing seat UNTIL they weigh “at least 40 pounds or is at least 40 inches tall”, in that case they may travel in a front-facing seat.
(Stay with us here…)
In Aussie terms, Kim is off the hook if little Saint either weighs more than 18 kilograms, or has a height over 101 centimetres.
But considering the average height and weight for toddlers Saint’s age is far, far below that – we’re not sure the exemption would apply.
Which basically makes Kim Kardashian a hard criminal, friends.
Or, you know, just someone who has a loose interpretation of what constitutes 101 centimetres…
