Where is the Safest Place to Ride in a Car While I’m Pregnant?

As an experienced automobile attorney, I’m glad you asked this because the answer is-not behind the wheel. Experts agree that it’s safer to ride as a passenger than to drive while pregnant. If you have the choice, ride as a passenger in the back seat. In tests with “pregnant” crash test dummies, uterine strain was lower for vehicle occupants riding in the passenger position-mainly because there’s no steering wheel to hit. In a crash, contact with the wheel can be deadly for baby, so avoid driving if possible. When practical, ride in the passenger seat with a 3-point seat belt and airbag with the seat positioned as far rearward as possible.
