Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
  • (B)  False
Explanation:
Adults frequently seat their kids in the front, a dangerous practice. As per data revealed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1% of infants and 1/3 of kids between 4 to 7 years are placed in the front seat of motor vehicles -- while all children aged 12 and below should sit in the backseat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that “sitting in a rear seat instead of the front seat reduces fatal injury risk by 36 percent among children 12 and younger.”
