Confirm with your state and local law.

The generic answer seems to be that this is ok.

  • Child must be in a child restraint until at least age 8 (this is different pretty much across the board, some by age, some weight, some maybe both)
  • If a child is still rear facing they must be in the back seat. If a vehicle does not have a back seat, any passenger side air bags must be disabled.
If a child is forward facing, they are allowed in the front seat (so long as they are properly restrained).

If a child is rear facing, they are only allowed in the front seat only if you do not have rear seats and then you must disable any air bags.

Again confirm with your State and Local law for 2 seat passenger cars and pick up trucks child seat restrictions.
