If you have a 2 seater car, can you put a 3 year old in a car seat in the front?
Obviosuly disabling the airbags, and I understand about the safety implications

but what is the legaility on it

I'm pretty sure that is perfectly legal.

I own a Miata 2-seater which is equipped with a switch to disable the passenger airbag. My kids are older now, but when they needed to use a baby/booster seat, I would install it and switch off the airbag. Never had a problem.

What other choice do you have, anyways? Stick 'em in the trunk...?

thanks cliff,

LOLZ in the trunk, nah I'd stuff my wife in the trunk and keep baby in the front; she's cuter and the "pullability" factor is greator

As far as I know, it's perfectly legal to have a child in the front seat of a car with these stipulations:

- The front airbag must be disabled. Some newer vehicles will do this automatically with sensors in the seat that detect the small weight.
- They're still using the appropriate booster seat.
