(Note: If the child is not between age four (4) and age eight (8), but is less than four feet nine inches (4’9″) in height, he/she must still use a seat belt system meeting federal motor vehicle safety standards.)
Tennessee state law mandates that your child should sit in the rear seat (when available) until they turn 9 years old. However, children age 12 and under should ride in the back seat of the vehicle whenever possible as the back seat is the safest position for children.
