Introduction
The rear
seat
is
generally
the
safest
place
ina
collision.
The
physical
principles
of
what
happens
when
your
vehicle
is
in
a
crash
apply
also
to
children

What
happens
to
occupants
not
wearing
safety
belts?.
But
unlike
adults
and
teenagers,
their
muscles
and
bones
are
not
fully
developed.
In
many
respects
children
are
at
greater
risk of
serious
injury
in
crashes
than
adults.
Because
children's
bodies
are
not
fully
developed,
they
require
restraint
systems
especially
de-
signed
for
their
size,
weight,
and
body
structure.
Many
countries
and
all
states
of
the
United
States
and
provinces
of
Canada
have
laws
requir-
ing
the use
of
approved
child
restraint
systems
for
infants
and
small
children.
In
a
frontal
crash
at
a
speed
of
20
-
35
mph
(30
-
56
km/h)
the
forces acting
on
a
13-pound
(6
kg)
infant
will
be
more
than
20
times
the
weight
of
the
child.
This
means
the
weight
of
the
child
would
suddenly
be
more
than
260
pounds
(120
kg).
Under
these conditions,
only
an
appro-
priate
child
restraint
properly
used
can
reduce
the
risk
of
serious
injury.
Child
restraints,
like
adult
safety
belts,
must
be
used
properly
to
be
effective.
Used
improperly,
they
can
increase
the
risk of
serious
injury
in
an
accident.
All
children,
especially
those
12
years
and
young-
er
must
always
ride
in
the
back
seat
properly
re-
strained
for
their
age and
size.
If
you
must
install
a
child
restraint
on
the
front
passenger
seat
in
exceptional
circumstances,
be
sure
to
read
and
heed
the
important
information
and
warnings
=

282.
Infants
and
other
children
who
are
properly
restrained
in
an
appropriate
child
re-
straint
that
is
for
their
size
and age
can
benefit
from
the
protection
that
supplemental
side
air-
bags
provide
in
some
kinds
of
crashes.

Important

instructions
for
using
child
safety
seats.
Please
be
sure
to
read
and
heed
all
of
the
important
in-

and
WARNINGS
about
child
safety,
Ad-
vanced
Airbags,
and

in
this
chapter.
There
is
a
lot
you
need
to
know
about
the
Ad-
vanced
Airbags
in
your
vehicle
and
how
they
work
when
infants
and
children
in
child
restraints
are
on
the
front
passenger
seat.
Because
of
the
large
amount
of
important
information,
we
cannot
re-
peat
it
all
here.
We
urge
you
to
read
the
detailed
information
in
this
owner's
manual
about
airbags
and
the
Advanced
Airbag
System
in
your
vehicle
and
the
very
important
information
about
trans-
porting
children
on
the
front
passenger
seat.
Please
be
sure
to
heed
the
WARNINGS
-
they
are
extremely
important
for
your
safety
and
the
safe-
ty
of
your
passengers,
especially
infants
and
small
children.
ZA
WARNING
Accident
statistics
have
shown
that
children
are
generally
safer
in
the
rear
seat
area
than
in
the
front
seating
position.
Always
restrain
any
child
age
12
and
under
in
the
rear.
All
vehicle
occupants
and
especially
children
must
be
restrained
properly
whenever
riding
in
a
vehicle. An
unrestrained
or
improperly
restrained
child
could
be
injured
by
striking
the
interior
or
by
being
ejected
from
the
ve-
hicle
during
a
sudden
maneuver
or
impact.
An
unrestrained
or
improperly
restrained
child
is
also
at
greater
risk
of
injury
or
death
through
contact
with
an
inflating
airbag.
—A
suitable
child
restraint
properly
installed
and
used
at
one
of
the
rear
seating
positions
provides
the
highest
degree
of
protection
for
infants and
small
children
in
most
acci-
dent
situations.
