Today on FB one of those parenting question status's popped up where people send in questions announomosly And people answer (yep recipe for disaster) and a question was something along the lines of they were preparing for a new baby and wanted to know which seat to put the baby seat on. Middle, behind driver or behind passenger.
So many people posted behind passenger side (mainly because when you get bubs out of car that is curbside and also so you can reach over to them whilst driving!!!)
I was always under the impression that this was the most dangerous seat in the car.
My dad and brother are both fireman, my sister a paramedic and my mum a volunteer paramedic and they all agree. Majority of the car accidents they have been called to- the person in that seat is almost always injured or worse.
It's to do with the fact a driver will instinctively turn away from a collision therefore causing the passenger side to get the full brunt of the collision.
I'm just curious of other peoples thoughts? I'm having another baby in sept and that will make it three for us do obviously one child has to sit in the "dangerous" seat.
I just always assumed that you choose behind the driver or middle before you chose behind the passenger? Thoughts?
