The safety place of your car to install your baby infant carrier
The safest place for your baby infant carrier or child's car seat is the back seat, away from active air bags. If the car seat is placed in the front seat and the air bag inflates, it could hit the back of a rear-facing car seat — right where your child's head is — and cause a serious injury. A child who rides in a forward-facing car seat could also be harmed by an air bag.
If it's necessary for your child to travel in a vehicle such as a pickup truck that has only one row of seats, deactivate the front air bags or install a power switch to prevent air bag deployment during a crash.
If you're going to place only one car seat in the back seat, install it in the center of the seat — if a good fit is possible rather than next to a door to minimize the risk of injury during a crash.
