Study says children are safest in rear center seat

From NBC12 News

Experts say young children should always be placed in the back of a vehicle - preferably in the middle seat.

New research suggests children ages 3 and younger are 43 percent less likely to be injured when they're in the rear center seat.

However, the study found young children were most often placed in the rear passenger-side position.

Researchers think that's where drivers can most easily keep an eye on them.
