In the state of North Carolina can a 4 year old child sit in the front passenger seat if the vehicle does not have an airbag?
In North Carolina, it is technically legal for a 4 year old childto ride in the front passenger seat if there is no air bag, but itisn't recommended. For vehicles with airbags…, the law is that achild must be over 5 years old and 40 pounds to ride in the frontpassenger seat.
when they are at least 9 years old Added: The questioners state is not given. All states have different rules on this matter . In some it is governed by the child's age, …in others it is governed by the child's height and/or weight, or a combination of all three. Contact your local law enforcement or DMV office for the correct answer to this question for your state.
Child must be in forward-facing child seat, located in back seat if back seat is present. Child 4-8 between 40 and 80 pounds: Child must be in a forward-facing booster s…eat. Seat is not required to be placed in back seat.
Tall enough to reach to climb into the vehicle.
it depends where do u live the laws r different evrywhere While you should always take into account your local regulations, you should also be aware of the pros and cons a…ssociated with frontal airbags (the main reason why small children typically should not be allowed to use the front seat). Where modern airbags are concerned, we can easily compare the amount of injuries and fatalities caused by airbags to the amount of lives saved and injuries prevented by them and see that airbags greatly improve the safety of your vehicle. That said, small injuries are very common amongst adult passengers, broken fingers, bruises, and burns from the inert but very hot gas which allows the airbag to inflate so rapidly. I think that the general rule is that children under the age of 13 should not be allowed to sit in the front seat, but this ultimately depends on the size of your child. If you have an infant, or a very little one, you should never use a rear facing child-safety seat because it puts their head too close to the front dash. Front facing child-safety seats are also considered dangerous. Even if your child is close to 13, you should only allow them to sit in the front seat when the seat is pushed back fully, and you should prevent them from leaning forward to tie their shoes, etc.. Some modern cars have functions allowing you to turn off the front seat passenger airbag.
you should be 10
I don't know about Texas, but a child has to be 100 pounds to be in the front seat in NY. There is no sense in putting them there unless you are sure. They need to be protecte…d.
that's a good question. my buttcheeks alright tell that to your kid
Disable the passenger-size airbag. . If there is no way to disable the passenger airbag, the only safe thing is to belt them in the back seat -- which is safer, and required… by law in most states anyway.
The only time I know of is when the car is out in a large open field surrounded by trees and grass and the battery is disconnected ensuring that the Airbag will NOT go off. T…hat airbag can go off at anytime. That would be the equivalent of lifting your child up 15 feet into the air and dropping them on their face. It's not very good for the child.
they have to sit forward and with a seat belt
It depends on where you live, and how old the child is. For example if you lived in Canada then the child would have to be 10 and older, but in the United States I think it's …12 years old when a child can sit in the front seat, but many people obied that law. In some cases when the car only has 2 seats (two in the front) the parent or guardian has no choice but to let the child sit at the front.
In order to have the right to sit in front you need to check with the laws of your own state. In most states they have guidelines on height, weight and age of the child. Remem…ber an airbag can seriously harm a child, especially one that wears glasses, braces or other orthotics around the head. Think of the child's welfare rather than his or her cries to sit in front.
well it depends on the age. But if they are older then 8 years old then it is usually totally up to you but it varies in different countries.
A child can sit in the front seat whenever they or the parent chooses. There is no current law about what age a Chile must be to be able to sit in the front seat. The reccomme…nded age is 13 or older. This answer is not technically correct in MA,and I suspect in many other states. According to the EOPSS Children 12 and under should always ride in the back seat. Follow vehicle manufacturers' warnings about seating of children near airbags.
The laws are different in each region, but it is recommended by pediatricians to keep children in the back seat until they are at least 12 years old, in a booster seat until a…t least age 8. (It is based on height and weight so you need to look for the guidelines for your child seat.)
no, its illegal
