Do you cringe when you see kids riding in the front seat of a vehicle?

Picking up my own kids at school, I always see others climbing into the front seats. Where do yours sit?

Where I live there is no booster seat law. So I've seen it a lot.

Sometimes in the back, sometimes in the front.

My girls sit in boosters in the middle of my van..my niece sits in my front seat when she gets in as she is as tall as I am  and is 11 years old.

They sit in the middle two seats. The dog rides shotgun. My oldest often rides in the front of my husband's car when he drops them off.

MY 11 year old is 5 feet tall and weighs 95 pounds.  He sits in the front.  Are you saying an Adult who is 5 feet tall and weighs 95 pounds shouldn't sit inthe frint?

I see it too in the pickup line every day.

My DDs are 3 and 5 and they sit in the back.  In my state it's recommended no children in the front until age 13, but at my 5 year old's school (they go up to grade 5) I see kids much younger than 13 getting in the front seats every day.

Once parked to wait for the bus my 7 year old climbs up front with me.

It's not about age or weight or height but about bone density if the airbag was to deploy. A child's bones may not be firm enough to protect them from internal injuries in the event of a crash.

No. I also don't see that much. I don't pay that much attention to other people.

Most cars are now equipped with weight sensors in the passenger seat that turn off the airbag.
