Correct
safety
belt
positioning
B4H-0751
RAZ-0696
Fastened
safety
belts
only
offer
optimal
protec-
tion
during
an
accident
and
reduce
the
risk of
se-
rious
injury
or
death
when
they
are
positioned
correctly.
Furthermore,
the
correct
safety
belt
position
holds
the
vehicle
occupant
in
place
so
that
a
deployed
airbag
can
provide
maximum
protection.
Therefore,
always
fasten
the
safety
belt
and
make
sure
it
is
positioned
correctly
>
fig.
63.
To
ensure
the
safety
belt
is
positioned
correctly,
make
sure
of
the
following
points:
—The
lap
portion
of
the
safety
belt
must
be
locat-
ed
across
the
lap.
—The
shoulder
portion
of
the
safety
belt
must
rest
over
the
center
of
the
shoulder.
The
safety
belt
must
always
rest
flat
and
se-
curely
on
the
body.
For
pregnant
women,
the
safety
belt
must
rest
evenly
across
the
chest
and
as
low
and
flat
as
possible
on
the
lap,
so
that
no
pressure
is
applied
to
the
lower
abdomen.
This
should
be
done
throughout
the
entire
pregnancy

WARNING
Incorrect
safety
belt
positioning
can
cause
se-
rious
injury
in
the
event
of
an
accident
or
dur-
ing
sudden
braking
or
driving
maneuvers.
Never
drive
with
the
backrest
reclined
ex-
tremely
far.
The
more
the
backrest
is
tilted
back,
the
greater
the
risk
of
injury
due
to
the
safety
belt
being
routed
incorrectly.
The
safety
belt
itself
or
a
loose
safety
belt
can
cause
serious
injuries
if
it
shifts
onto
soft
areas
of
the
body,
such
as
the
stomach.
The
shoulder
portion
of
the
safety
belt
must
lie
over
the
center
of
the
shoulder
and
chest,
and
never
under
the
arm,
behind
the
back,
or
across
the
neck
or
face.
The
lap
portion
of
the
safety
belt
must
lie
across
the
lap
and
never
over
the
stomach.
—The
safety
belt
must
lie
flat
and
securely
on
the
upper
part
of
the
body
and
the
lap.
The
belt
webbing
must
not
be
pinched
or
twisted,
or
rub
against
sharp
edges.
If
the
safety
belt
height
is
set
incorrectly
and/or
the
safety
belt
is
routed
incorrectly,
then
the
safety
belt's
protective
function
will
be
impaired
in
the
event
of
an
accident.
Make
sure
the
safety
belt
is
at
the right
height
and
is
routed
correctly
for
the
pas-
senger
using
it.
A
safety
belt
that
is
too
loose
may
lead
to
in-
juries
during
an
accident,
because
your
body
will
move
farther
forward
due
to
kinetic
en-
ergy
and
will
be
stopped
abruptly
by
the
belt.
Heavily
bulky,
loose
clothing
(for
example,
a
coat
over
a
sports
jacket)
may
prevent
the
seat
and
safety
belts
from
functioning
cor-
rectly.
Do
not
position
the
safety
belt
over
hard
or
breakable
objects
(such
as
glasses,
pens,
etc.).
The
lap
belt
portion
of
the
safety
belt
must
sit
as
low
as
possible
on
the
lap
of
pregnant
women
and
lie
flat
under
the
belly.

Note
Make
sure
that
there
are no
hook-and-loop
fasteners
or
sharp
objects
such
as
zippers
