IS THE RIDESAFER SAFE TO USE IN A CAR WITH CURTAIN AIRBAGS?

Yes, it is. All air bags (frontal or side) are supplemental safety devices and are intended to work best in combination with safety belts. Therefore, NHTSA recommends that:

  • ALL children use a safety restraint appropriate for their age and size (this could be a safety seat, booster seat or adult safety belt).
  • Children aged 12 and younger are safest sitting in the rear seat properly restrained.
  • NEVER place a rear-facing infant seat in the front seat of a vehicle with a front passenger air bag.
  • To minimize injury risks, NHTSA recommends that children not lean or rest against chest-only or head/chest combination SABs.
  • NHTSA has not seen any indication of risks to children from current roof-mounted head SABs.

NHTSA continues to closely monitor the real world performance of side airbags involving children and adults. You can read additional information about side airbags on SaferCar.gov.
