Can a child ride in a booster seat if the Air bag is off in the front seat of a car in MN?
Yes if the air bag has an on/off switch. But if this is a car with a back seat and not a vehicle with no back seat, place the child in the rear. This is the safest place for a child.

Do the older backless car seats or boosters that have a portion that comes across the front of the child and holds the seat belt meet safety regulations?
I can't find anywhere on the net that says either way. I did findsomething that said use a newer booster and described the kind withjust the seat, not the thing across the front, but that seemed morefor extra safety than law. If this booser is pretty old, then it isprobably a better idea to buy a ne…w one especially if you bought itused. It usually isn't a good idea to buy used carseats. If theyhave been in an accident, they may have been damaged without theprevious owner even knowing. My suggestion is to buy a new one. Orgo to your local fire department and have your old one checked out.Most fire departments have free monthly car seat safety checks. No!!! These NO LONGER meet safety standards and are EXTREAMLYdangerous!! Children suffer major injuries and even death in theseseats (known as shield booster seats). Many children slip out fromunder the shield or are thrown into it at a high rate of speedduring a crash, causing neck and spinal cord injuries, headinjuries, and several deaths. Jen E... Cert. Child Passenger Safety Technician and mom to 3inseats! Boosters with shield are NOT safe! In addition, the shield WAS tobe used only until 30 pounds. It IS safe, however to continue touse the seat WITHOUT the shield (only if the shield can becompletely removed - some were attached). The purpose of a boosteris to position a child so that the vehicle seat belt fits properly- low across thighs and across shoulder, therefore, the base of ashield booster is acceptable.

How do you turn passenger side air bag off in 1999 ford focus so i can have baby car seat in front seat?
WHY? . \nPut the infant seat in the back seat of the car and not in the front. Children should ride properly restrained in the back seat whenever possible. Children are much safer (approximately 29 percent) the farther they are from the point of impact -- most commonly a frontal crash. The seat s…hould be installed facing backward. I cannot think of a good reason for you to put the child in the front seat, unless possibly you have other children, and think this is the best route to go. If that is the case, then place the largest child in the front seat with the seat pulled back as far as possible. Put the infant in the rear. You can have a passenger side air bag disconnect switch installed by a professional with permission from the NHTSA. Go to www.nhtsa.gov for more information. ( Full Answer )

Under the air bag safety information section in the Pennsylvania drivers manual, from what I understand children age 12 and younger should ride buckled up in the rear seat.

(When 14, it varies on if the parent should allow you to sit up front or the back, for safety reasons, trust me im in the same situation) . I thin…k that is right ( Full Answer )

Age is not determined for this ... size and weight is the determining factor. There is no law in NY that a child can sit in the front seat. Anyone can but the reccomended weight is 100 pounds and 4'11 for the height.
According to what I have read it is not reccommended whatsoever, but is not against the law as of right now. I got my information from this website.. . www.infant-car- seats .com/states/car- seats -laws- Ohio .html .

The new law is that the child either has to be 5 foot 1 and over 100 pounds, or 13.
The answer is in weight. You would have to call your department of motor vehicles to find out the correct weight.
actually it isn't what height it is how old the child has to be because if you put a child in the car and they are only 4' feet then you can get a ticket the child has to be older than 11 to ride in the front seat of a car
no Only if the front airbag can be deactivated - this does not mean it is allowed in every state - some states have laws that mandate the child should be in the back seat until they weigh 85 lbs or are 14 years old -

it is how tall they are. Front seat belts are not designed for children under 4 foot 8 inches or 1,422 millimeters tall without a booster seat.

no because they are too young and they might not weigh enough so when you have an accident the air bag might not work.

I am not sure about NC, but in PA it is based upon weight. Here it is 40 pounds.
This depends on the state but usually children are not allowed in the front seat until they are 4'7" or a certain age. This means no child in a booster seat should be in the front seat as the airbags are not designed to work safelt with something like that in the front seat.
California law is not age-based, but weight-based. A child can sit in the front seat at 65 lbs.

What age or weight must a child be to ride in front passenger seat with an air bag in the state of Washington?
8 through 15; 7 years and younger and 4'9" or taller; children who weigh more than 40 pounds in a seating position where there is only a lap belt available 8 through 15;
Yes, if the car didn't originally have them, then it is legal, just not safe.
if a child were to sit in the front seat and an accident happened the air bag would inflate and hit the child in the face at a good velocity to bruise, and crack not break the bones of a grown adult. the airbags would kill the child crushing their skull.
The law is 12. But it's all personal choice, up to the parent. If you are in an accident and the child is not activating the air bag it could mean serious injuries. I would say until he or she can active the airbag.
Different states have different regulations when it comes to how long children should ride in booster seats. Typically the average size and age is 4'9" tall and/or 8 to 10 years old. Check with your states guidelines to make sure your state's regulations are the same.
Well if you want to sit in the front of a car, then it matters about height not age. But this rule and measurement changes throughout states.
