A driver is facing almost $1,700 in fines and had his vehicle towed after being caught by Manitoba RCMP driving under extremely dangerous conditions.

Police said a baby’s carseat was sitting on the console at the front of the vehicle rather than being properly, safely restrained in the back. A 13-year-old passenger was also in the vehicle without a seatbelt.
