1.4.1. Seat adjustment
Seat adjustment if in it there will be a need, make only prior to the beginning of driving. After the seat is adjusted, be convinced that it is reliably fixed. For this purpose try to move a seat and its back forward and back, without using the adjustment mechanism.
It is very dangerous to go in a luggage compartment of the car or on a roof luggage carrier. Besides, the luggage compartment and back seats cannot be used as a platform for childish sports. In case of a road accident for the passengers placed in a luggage compartment or on back sitting without seat belts, there is an increased danger of receiving serious traumas or death. Do not allow adult passengers and children to settle down in those parts of your car which are not equipped with seats and seat belts. Be convinced that each passenger of your car is placed on sitting and will fasten a seat belt, and the child is fixed on children's sitting. to provide safety of children, do not allow them to regulate the seats independently.
To reduce risk of receiving a trauma at collision or unexpected braking of the car, a back of seats of the driver and the passenger sitting in front, should be during movement in almost vertical situation. Efficiency of seat belts can decrease considerably if the back of a seat is inclined. In this case there is a danger of that the passenger will slip out from under a seat belt and as a result will get a serious trauma.
Be convinced that adjustment of a seat was made by the adult person.
If adjustment was made by the child, it can become an accident cause.
Do not enclose a pillow, etc. between a back and a seat back for the period of a trip in the car. It will reduce efficiency of action of head restraints in case of a road accident.
During the moving of a seat or an inclination of a back of a seat back, pay attention on sitting behind passengers.
