A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Are infant car seats supposed to be in the back seat simply because of air bags, or is there something inherently dangerous about the front seat sans airbags?

A: Dear Newbie,

The back middle seat is the safest spot in the car. It's the most cushioned from impact on all sides.

It is also because of the air bags. I was 11 and it was legal for me to ride in the front seat, but when we got in a minor accident the air bags still broke my nose. It isn't a good place for infants to be.
