The concept of having small children travelling in rearward facing child seats in the front seat of the car is discussed, based on 15 years experience of these systems in use. Booster systems which allow the older children to use existing adult belts have been bought for more than 50% of the children the last years and some aspects of this development are presented. The development of a special booster seat for handicapped children as well as the present situation on the European legislative work are also reported.
