    Default Car seat side?

    My car seat is rear driver too; I feel like I will instinctively try to protect the drivers side in the event of a collision and that means ds will be safer on the same side of me

    Oh yep mine does have a hump.. It's a small 4-wheel drive with a split down the middle of the back seats do they can be folded forward for storage. Prob very unsafe to have a car seat in the middle...

    I don't agree that middle is safest. I always think if you are in a head on accident the child is exposed in the middle seat. I personally would never put a child in the middle. I have 2 kids so seats on either sides in the rear. I didn't think it mattered too much which side who goes where but when I just had the one child I liked to have bub rear passenger so he could see me while I was talking to him.

    I think the answer is - look into your crystal ball and find out whether you will be in a head-on collision, get t-boned while turning right, or stop on a busy road with cars whizzing past when you get out and decide accordingly

    If i remember rightly i was told statistically you have more chance of being in a side impact collision than a head on therefore the middle is the safest. I trust that the trained professionals who installed our seat know what they are talking about. Hopefully!

    We live in the country so I would say this theory would be more for city driving. Most accidents, if not all in the country are head on.

    True. Many factors to take into consideration depending on your personal circumstances
