one more thing. I don't know if you are old enough to remember a crash that happened a few years back? it involved a dump truck & trailer w/backhoe vs. a S10 extended cab with cap. the S10 blew the stop sign. it was crushed by the dump truck & trailer. 11 out of 13 people in the S10 died. the two survivors were in the cab in the jump seats.

Do I dare guess the race of the 13 people in the S10?

The mother(driver) of 4 of the dead kids was white. the rest varied as it was a little league team. this was the accident that was used to make riding in the back of trucks illegal in Michigan.

From my Mom who is a federally licensed Child protective seat specialist, the legaility is open to interpretation by who is asked.
In her opinion she would NOT recommend it as the seat isn't truly forward facing, in a car seat isn't designed to take the impact forces in that direction. And the possibility of getting crushed by the bench seat is higher than comfortable.

Yeah, why bother taking some responsibility and worrying about the safety of your child, leave it to the hands of lawmakers to make that decision for you.
