Shopping carts unsafe

A Calif paper reports:
The nation's pediatricians are warning parents today against putting children in shopping carts.

"Parents are strongly encouraged to seek alternatives," says the American Academy of Pediatrics, which reports that shopping carts were involved in injuries to more than 24,000 children last year, mostly when a child fell out or a cart tipped over. ...

The organization of 60,000 pediatricians says many carts are unstable or have inadequate restraint systems, and they are urging stronger manufacturing standards.
The pediatrician recommendations on stuff like is idiots. Still, I could have used this when my ex-wife accused me of letting our kids run loose in the store.
