Child restraint systems include rear-facing-only car safety seats (CSSs), convertible and combination CSSs, integrated seats, travel vests, and belt-positioning booster by: A rear-facing infant seat should Never be placed in the front seat of a vehicle equipped with an active passenger air bag.

If a child over one year old must ride in the front seat with a passenger side air bag, put the child in a front facing child safety seat, a booster seat, or a correct fitting lap/shoulder belt-- AND move the seat as far.

Even with the front passenger occupant classification sensor, if you must use the front passenger seat to seat a child, using a child-restraint system on the front passenger seat under the following conditions increases the danger of the front passenger air bag deploying and could result in serious injury or death to the child.

The front passenger air bag status light does not indicate a malfunction of the front passenger air bag. If the front passenger air bag status light is illuminated while an adult occupies the seat, the occupant may need to shift his or her seating position so the system can turn on the front passenger air bag and turn off the status light.

A rear-facing child-restraint system should NEVER be used in the front passenger seat with the air bag system activated. The front passenger's seat is also the least preferred seat for other child-restraint systems.

Warnings on interaction between air bags and rear-facing child restraints. NHTSA estimates that safety belts saved nea lives of passenger vehicle occupants age 5 and older in the United States in Successful occupant protection programs involve enforcement, communication, and the education necessary to achieve significant, lasting increases in safety belt and child safety seat usage.
