Quoting Stefanie:

Go there, put in your state and it will tell you the age. But, yes, I would assume all those parents are breaking the law.


Well i went there thank you it says Georgia law kids under 6 need to ride in a booster. and they can ride in the front seat if they have a booster at kids 6 and up front back whatever and no booster wow but i think i'm gonna make him stay in the back maybe he can ride up front on thje way to school in the morning when its just me and him lol so that baby sister doesnt get mad!!!! :D :D

"For children under 80 pounds to properly be secured in a vehicle, they should sit in an appropriate child safety seat (or booster seat). In addition, children under the age of 13 should sit in the rear of a vehicle. "
that's the law for my state, MN.

Yeah I read the other day they have to be a lot older than I thought to ride in the front seat. My husband and I have decided that reguardless of how old our kids are, if we have 2 (or 3) NONE of them are sitting up front. There will be none of that "but you got to sit there last time" crap. It has nothing to do with safety, quite honestly they don't need to sit in the front, they can stay in the back and then there's not fighting over something so silly. I once got a ride home from school by a friends mum and her little sister screamed at me because she wanted to sit in the front. Yep, not happening! hehe

i dont know from personal experience but i think they have to be able to see out of the window without a booster seat, think its with the airbags they fit most cars with.

here in australia a child should be about 4 or 5 (depending on their height etc) before they go without a booster seat and i'm pretty sure they aren't supposed to sit in the front until they're about 10 (however i may be wrong and it may be younger like 7 or something)
