Sean Preston In The Driving Seat
Road safety campaigners slam Britney for driving with baby in her lap
Britney Spears has outraged road safety campaigners by getting caught on camera driving with her baby sat in her lap.
The singer was snapped leaving a Malibu Starbucks in her black SUV with one hand on the wheel and the other wrapped around four-month-old Sean Preston.
The young mum had stopped for coffee but apparently became alarmed by a crowd of photographers and when her bodyguard got back in the car she drove off with the tot still in her lap. Under Californian law babies must be strapped into approved car seats " or face a 160 fine.
In a statement she said: "I instinctively took measures to get my baby and me out of harm's way. I love my child and would do anything to protect him."
But an AA expert warned: "Anyone with half a brain must know a child in that situation is very vulnerable." Lucky it was Britney and not Kevin driving then
