    front seat or back?


    After seeing a news report last week about the dangers of a lap belt only I am a little uneasy. This is normally not an issue for me as I have 2 children. But, when my niece or another child rides with us, I have always put them all in the back seat. This report said that the middle lap belt only seat is THE most dangerous and likely to cause more injuries or death. I rememeber hearing when air bags were 1st introduced, that if you had no other choice but for the child to ride in the front seat, to push the seat back as far as possible. My oldest is almost 8 and is big for his age. My question is would it be safer to let him ride in the front instead of putting someone in the back middle seat?
