Inflatable Child Seat and Child

End Illegal Parking Tow Away Misery

This simple device, operated by mouth, gas cartridge or electric pump, once inflated, looks just like a toddler asleep in a car seat. Inflate, add a blanket (for more authenticity), then walk away, safe in the knowlege that no bastard will tow away a car with a toddler inside.

Cheapskates could use a real car seat and a doll.

Deluxe models of the inflatable child seat and child could burst into tears and cry when movement of the car is detected, thus acting as an excellent car alarm. [Lemon, Jul 13 2000, last modified Oct 17 2004]


       On the other hand, expect to find your car windows broken and your car surrounded by angry EMS, police, and firefighters after a curious passerby spies the baby, notices it isn't breathing, and calls 911.   

       Even if you rig the faux infant to mimic breathing, you'd better not use it on a hot day or you might still get the above result.

       Isn't this already baked for a different purpose: being able to drive solo in the carpool lane without being pulled over?

       I work for a London Council, dealing with parking enforcement.   

       The only thing that woud stop our removal men would be an inflatable doll, with a wad of real cash in it's hand.
