Pop star Britney Spears is doing more for the promotion of child car seat safety than the industry could have ever possibly hoped for, and yet she hasn't earned a dime. The starlet recently committed her second child seat faux pas when she put son Sean Preston in a car seat facing forwards in the back of her Mini Cooper convertible. While California vehicle code doesn't specify which way the child seat should be facing, it does mandate that motorists follow federal guidelines, which clearly state that the seat should be facing backwards.

In Britney's defense, manufacturers vary on the recommended positioning of the seat and Sean Preston's seat may very well be one which the manufacturer recommends it faces forward.
