  • Kids in the Back for a Safer Ride












  • Kids in the Back for a Safer Ride

    All children ages 12 years and younger should ride in the back seat, the safest part of a vehicle in the event of a crash. This is especially important for vehicles with front passenger-side airbags. Riding in the back seat is associated with at least a 30% reduction in the risk of fatal injury in cars without front passenger side airbags. Placing children in the back seat of vehicles with front passenger side airbags reduces this risk by 46%. Infants in rear-facing child safety seats should never be placed in a seat in front of an airbag. About one-third of children ages 12 years and younger who were killed in 2000 were riding in the front seat.

    Even in a slow-speed crash, the force of a deployed airbag can injure or kill a young child. Riding in the back eliminates children’s risk of injury from front passenger-side airbags. Children ages 12 years and younger should always ride in the back seat, the safest part of the vehicle in the event of a crash.
