What age do youlet your daughter to ride in the front seat???
Ramona Mom to 2 great kids and wife to one wonderful hubby since 1990!
The age stated on the directions in my car says 12 years old..
I'd like to add some little known information that applies to everyone.
Often you'll see people in the front passenger seat wearing their seat-belt they way they should but having the seat tilted back either resting or sleeping. Please remember that if there is a sudden and unexpected front-end impact that person won't be moved forward against the seat-belt as they would if they were in a normal sitting position but would have a tenancy to slide forward UNDER the seat-belt which would force the person's insides to be pushed up into their upper body. The seat-belt would also have a tendency to get hung up on the lower rib cage and do a lot of damage as the person slides further under the seat-belt. Get the picture?
That's true, and really sitting in just about any way other than upright with your back against the seat is bad too. I was in a rear-end car accident a few years ago, and I instinctively leaned forward when I saw the other car coming in my rearview mirror. That pulled out the shoulder part of the seatbelt just enough to stop it from locking, and I ended up hitting my head on the steering wheel - ouch.
Also remember that if you have people sitting in the front seat they should not lean forward to get something off the floor when the car is in motion.
I have one of those!
