Which Child Should Sit in the Middle Seat

Which Child Should Sit In The Middle Seat?

Understanding the safest seat for each child.

As we get ready to send the kids back to school, you’re probably gearing up for carpool season. With more kids in your car, you might find yourself wondering the safest seats for each one of them. To help you understand which child should sit in the middle seat, let’s take a closer look at the best place for each kid in your car.

Before you determine which child should sit in the middle, let’s first look at who should sit in the front, who should sit in the back, and who will need a booster seat.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration advises that all children under the age of 13 should sit in the back seat and wear a seatbelt with a shoulder harness. If you have any students in your car who are over 13, then, it’s safe to put them in the front seat.

Don’t just assume that kids are safe because they’re in the back seat, though. If they can’t sit with their backs against the seat and knees bent over the seat’s edge, kids need to be in a booster seat to be kept safe.

Now that you know who should sit where, you can arrange kids as they fit best in the back seat. Statistically, the middle seat is the safest but wearing properly-fitted seatbelts, all children in the back seat should be protected.
