Question: What are the requirements for children to sit in the front seat of a car ? Height? Weight?
Answer: There are no specific height and weight recommendations. We would all be safer in the back seat. The recommendation is to stay in the back seat until age 13. If your child is very small, try to hold off even longer. Data show that children riding in the front seat are at 40% to 70% increased risk of injury. Riding in the back seat reduces the risk of injury in both frontal and side-impact crashes, and also reduces the severity of injury.
