aeormsby said:I seem to remember some discussion about the safety of RF seats for adults with the Dodge van that had the rotating 2nd row seats (do they still make those or was it only 1-2 years?).
I'm pretty sure the consensus was/is that everyone would be safer RF in a vehicle (in proper seats - so those captain chairs with headrests & shoulder belts are good, the old 3rd row backwards seats in station wagons with lap belts & low seatbacks not so much). The physics isn't changing just because your bigger (the entire back taking the force instead of the head slinging forward).
I believe there are some numbers that are always/typically better forward-facing than rear-facing.
