Is it just me or are they really confusing?

Ok, I have a son, age 8, 4'8" tall, and weighs 72 lbs.

Is it legal for him to ride in the front of my car? If not, when?

And btw, my car does not have a way to manually turn off the passenger side airbag that I am aware of.

He must be in a size-appropriate booster seat, but I think he can ride in the front seat. It's dangerous for small children (or even my 4'9" grandmother) to ride in the front seat, so if I were you I'd keep him sitting in his booster in the back seat.

Default The law...

Missouri car seat safety laws require children under age four and under 40 pounds to ride in a federally approved child car seat that is appropriate for the child's age and size. Children ages 4 through 7 who weigh more than 40 pounds but less than 80 pounds or are not at least 4'9" tall must ride in an appropriate child car seat or booster seat. Children ages 8 to 18 must wear a seat belt. Missouri law also prohibits children under age 18 from riding in an unenclosed truck bed.
It doesn't specify front or back, but I am with aragx6, that he shouldn't be in the front seat....

Hope this helps!

My sister-in-law is about 25 years old. She is only about 4'8" also. I wish I had a nickel for every time I told her to get a booster so she can see over her steering wheel. My brother say's she's not allowed to wear orange because she's constantly mistaken for a road cone. We might find her at some construction site one day just sitting with all the other road cones eating taco bell. LOL!
