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

Have not seen any laws against children riding on the back of a motorcycle, but do use some sense. Is the child capable of knowing to hold on and not let go? Do you have the proper gear to put on the child?

There is a new law that goes into effect September 1, 2009 that prohibits children under the age of five from riding on motorcycles.

There are no laws concerning children and front seats. There is a law about children and the use of child safety seats.

Your child must be 13 years or older to sit in the front seat of a car. Here is an in-depth explanation of the laws about children riding in cars.
