I dont even weigh that, lol
Better sit in the back seat.


The 5' 100lbs thing is funny. I have a sister who isn't 5' tall. Although I am pretty sure she weighs in at 100+lbs but not entirely sure on that. She is a kindy teacher.

Fwiw, seats are designed at 145cm for the belt, however most adults under 5'2 still have issues with the belt fitting properly.
I once got a ticket for wearing a lab belt but not the shoulder belt despite the belt crossing over my neck. I guess it is better to get a broken neck than to be without the belt.

My older DS (9) has ridden in the front seat of DH's and my dad's trucks a few times with a booster since he is still on the short side for the belt. The airbags either automatically switch off or there is a switch. But these were large full size pick-up trucks, and I felt comfortable with their driving and safety. I wouldn't allow it in a smaller vehicle or with other drivers.
My sister and I always joke about our CA laws. She is 31, but only 4' 8" tall. While she may be legal, it's not the safest place for her.

Saying that all seatbelts are designed to the same standards or a specific height feels ridiculous to me. DD is 11 and 5' 1". She fits into the back seat of our sedan beautifully (using the 5 check points). However, she still uses a booster in our SUV.

In addition, people are built differently. 2 people might be the same overall height, but one might be long-waisted, and the other might be all legs. The long-waisted person might fit fine, but the leggy person might not sit high enough to have the shoulder strap fit correctly.

My children stopped asking these things a long time ago. DD knows how she is supposed to fit in a car. DS is learning.

All seat belts are designed to fit an adult, but not all seats are the same. Some have a short length, some have a long length. Others are higher off the ground, etc. DS can actually 5-step in the 3rd row of our Tahoe (although he still rides in a booster back there), but not in the captain chairs in the center, or in the back seat of my Cruze.

Its actually more likely that you'd suffer a lower spinal injury and/or head injury wearing a lap belt only than a spinal injury from a shoulder belt.

But... there are products out there that can help position the shoulder belt properly.

Totally agree. In fact, the belt being too close to your neck is a comfort thing. Totally acceptable fit and much less likely to be injured with the belt close to your neck than with the belt behind you.

Here's a video of a kid with just a lap belt, which is the same as putting the seatbelt behind you.
