A driver has been charged after allegedly using a case of beer as a booster seat for a child in the car.

It happened on Tuesday on Perth Road 30 in Atwood.

Provincial police say the two-year-old child who was involved was not injured.

Though it may have technically boosted the child, the driver, a 22 year old from the Township of Wellington North, was charged with failing to ensure a child is properly seat-belted.

It also appears that the child had been seated in the front seat of the vehicle.

Wellington County OPP say that they then brought a proper child seat to the vehicle.

Family and children's services were also notified, a press release says.

The driver of the vehicle was not identified.

Children under 40 lbs need a child seat, while those under 80 lbs and under eight years old require a booster seat.
