    it cannot be switched off by the driver - dependant on the specification you may be able to buy a vauxhall approved base that has a "transponder" fitted inside which deactivates the passenger bag - otherwise paying for Vx to potentially disable it via TECH2 and the paying for reactivation when no longer needed .... either way - its not cheap

    I do not have a child (yet anyway!) so do not know the practicalities, however I do know that statistically the back is a safer place to seat a child. Much safer in fact.

    Totally agree. If sprog is in the front, the driver could be more tempted to attend to their little darling while still driving along. At least in the back the driver is more than likely going to pull over and stop and therefore be less distracted.
