    We have ours behind passenger seat but I'm starting to think maybe I shouldn't put my baby in a car! It would be the safest option (joke)

    There are so many variables with colissions..... It will do your head in if you try and work out the 'safest' spot as all of the seating positions have significant risks.

    Even with proper restraints without the passenger making contact with anything other than the seat, the inertia is generally the cause of injury.

    The biggest things to consider are the ANCAP rating of the vehicle, that the car is kept in a properly maintained and roadworthy condition, the child restraint is correctly installed and fastened, and lastly (one that is often glossed over but causes significant injuries) that loose items are secured. I drive a 4WD and consider things such as an unsecured pram in the boot a bigger concern than which seat for the child restraints.
