If you have a child in the front seat of a car, you must ensure they are wearing a seat belt and that the airbag is connected. An unrestrained child without an airbag will be flung through the windshield in a crash and will die.

The only exception to this is if you've got a baby in a rear-facing car seat strapped to the passenger seat. The baby seat must, without exception, be attached to the seat solidly, or the seat must be strapped to the seat in an approved manner. Then the airbag must be disconnected to prevent crush injuries in a crash.

Urban myths have spread about airbags being dangerous. They are not, but not using a seatbelt is very dangerous; not using a seatbelt for your child is wanton neglect. For best results, strap your child into a car seat, fitted by professionals, on the rear seat of your car.
