If the vehicle has two rows, the middle of the back seat. If the vehicle has 3 rows, the middle of the second seat. And that just about says it all. Even with side impact protection, airbags, door beams etc, the safest place for any child seat is as far as possible from the potential impact. The absolute middle fo the vehicle is ideal. The above answers are correct. However, it is not always possible to put the seat in the center position. Some vehicles prohibit the use of the center position for a carseat (IE Chevy Blazer), so ALWAYS double check your vehical owners manual. Also sometimes the carseat won't fit well in the center position, so in such a case you would try it in the outboard positions. If it fits there better then in the center, it is better to have the seat in the outboard position. A great fit outboard is better then a poor fit center.

Although there is no law that prevents youngsters from sitting in the front seat of a vehicle in TX at this time, the safest place for a child in a car is in a rear seat, properly buckled into a child safety seat or a booster seat. Air bag safety issues suggest children 12 and under ought not to be placed in front of an air bag though.
Although there is no law that prevents youngsters from sitting in the front seat of a vehicle, the safest place for a child in a car is in a rear seat, properly buckled into a child safety seat or a booster seat. Air bags don't replace child safety seats and may increase the risk of serious injury to children. Children younger than 12 should never ride in the front seats of vehicles with active passenger air bags.
The most important part of safety for your child and the seat you choose is the fit of the seat into your automobile and your child into the seat. There are several models that are recommended but it is advised that you consult an expert in what style would be best for your automobile and child before making a purchase. I would begin with your local police station for advice. I would purchase from the safety first web site for the seat you choose. www.safety1st.com

In the rear seat facing backward. - - - - - - - According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), rear seats are safest place for infants and children. Placing children in back instead of the front reduces injury risk by 64 percent for newborns to 8 year-olds and reduces the risk by 31 percent for 9 to 12 year-olds.
The most important part of safety in car seats is the fit. The safety seat needs to fit your automobile and your child. I would contact your local police station to see if they can help with finding the right fit for your needs. The next step would be choosing a seat to fit your needs. I would begin with Safety 1st, Graco and Snug Ride. They seem to be the best choices.
It depends. If you have an airbag, they recomend you do not put them in the front seat until they are atleast 12. The absolute safest place for your child is the middle of the back seat. ------------------------------------------------------------------ do not matter I went in the front when I was 0
