What would you like to do?
Are there any laws on children riding in the back of SUVs that do not have a 3rd row seat?
If you mean behind the second row, yes, it's illegal. And it's extremly unsafe even if it is legal. There may be a few "behind the times" states that still have the law that as long as all seat belts are in use, people can sit behind the seat or in laps, but that doesn't mean this should be done. It is very unsafe.ans can cause serius injury or death

§ 27360 of California's Vehicle Code requires that children under the age of 8 must remain in the back seat and be restrained with an "appropriate child passenger restraint s…ystem." There are some exceptions: for children above a certain weight and height, if the car has no back seat, etc.
you must spit on their head and shove it out the window
I'm pretty sure they can, but i don't think the law recomends it! anyway, i hope your birthday goes well this year!
A child must be 11 and above to sit in the front seat. Any child under the weight of 75 lbs should be in the back seat. If you are under the age of eight you should be in the …back seat with a booster seat. If your car does not have a back seat, then your child should still sit in the front but still with a booster seat. You should also get your air-bag de-activated if you need a child to sit in the front that is under the age of 11. However, you should read your car's owner's manual as well. Some vehicles automatically turn off the airbag AND seat belt tensioner if the weight in the seat is under 66 pounds. Therefore, the seat belt would not work in an accident and it would be unsafe to ever have a live person even with booster seat in the front if the total weight is under 66 lbs. This is just one example from our Mazda 3. Your vehicle may have a different weight limit and may or may not shut off the seat belt tensioner if the passenger's weight is under the specified limit.
Any seat could work with safe installation...welding is the most solid way to add seating. You can purchase extra seating online. One site I know of is www.littlepassengerse…ats.com
You may not ride in the front seat of a car till you are 13 or older and must be over 85 pounds but this does not apply to cars without a back seat.
Laws vary by State. In Texas children must be 12 years old to ride in the front seat of a car.
You must be 12 years old to ride in the front seat.
There is no law stating that a child has to ride in the rear seat of a vehicle. For safety reasons, it is better for a child to ride in the rear seat due to the fact of many r…ecorded deaths involving children and airbags.
There are no laws concerning children and front seats. There is a law about children and the use of child safety seats.
children younger than 1 and all children who weigh less than 20 pounds are required to be in a rear-facing infant seat; children 1 through 3 years who weigh at least 20 pounds… but less than 40 pounds are required to be in a forward-facing child safety seat; children 4 through 7 who both weigh at least 40 pounds but less than 80 pounds and who are less than 57 inches tall are required to be in a booster seat
In Car Rentals
At my rental branch (Enterprise), it depends more on the individual car than the size class. But any vehicle that has a third row will probably be considered a "large SUV" or …a minivan. Such cars include the Dodge Journey (not all of these are 3-row, however), the Suburban, Tahoe, Buick Enclave, Escalade, and so on. There are some other types of cars that have 3 rows of seats, such as the Ford Flex and the Mazda 5, Mazda CX-9 and the Ford Taurus X. Cars of this type are usually called "crossovers" and how they are categorized varies from rental company to rental company. Of these, the Ford Flex probably has the best gas mileage (about 25 mpg highway). For big SUVs like the Suburban and the Escalade, mileage is more like 14-16. Not all of these cars are available in all markets, so talk to your rental agency about what you need.
the age is 14
The answers to this can be only opinion: The Hyundai Santa Fe has the best riding front seats.The Ford Explorer/Expedition/Excursion has the most comfortable front seats.
