You have to be at least 4-foot 9" to ride in the front seat of car. (in missouri.)
The child has to be at least 13 years of age and over 80 pounds. (law)
Any child under the age of 13 years old should stay in the backseat of the car. Children from 6 years old until 13 may ride in theback using just a seatbelt.
yes i belive so drive safe and obay the law
I am also researching this question. So far, I can only find information that says there is "no law" mandating this, but "children are always safer in the the back seat," and …it is "recommended" that children ride in the back through age 12. If you have a truck, I do think you have to disable the passenger side airbag if transporting a child in a rear-facing safety seat. If using the airbag with older children, they should sit with the seat as far back as possible b/c a deployed airbag can do serious damage when it hits the face or neck of a shorter passenger.
I found a really helpful PDF put out by the Utah Safety council. According to it, there is no law regarding children riding in the front seat of the car: http://www.utahsafety…council.org/assets/pdf/utboosterlaw.pdf It is recommended that children under age 12 ride in the back seat, or to turn the airbags off if a child under 12 is in the front seat, but there is no law saying you have to.
12 years old so a little over a hundred pounds.
The new law is that the child either has to be 5 foot 1 and over 100 pounds, or 13.
Massachusetts state laws state that any child under the age of 12 must ride in the backseat
Every state has different laws and regulations about when a childcan legally sit in the front seat of the car. On average, a childmust be at least 8 years old to sit up front …in a vehicle.
Nothing. Hehehe . Nothing.
Each state has there own laws regarding children in car seats, you would need to check with your located DMV.
Per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Maryland has no law expressing a preference for the rear seat. Maryland's laws pertain only to child restraint and adult safet…y belt usage.
well in a matter of speaking, not on the front seat, but you can put them in the baby seats and secure it to the passenger seat so, you can keep an eye on your baby never put… a baby on a normal seat with a seatbelt, if they slip through and bang their head, or are in a car accident it could cause permanent damage.
It varies by age/weight/height according to the individual state laws.
Because the airbag could kill them or severely injure them
Sit down, buckle up and shut up!
