Safety advice when travelling with children on board


 - Safety advice when travelling with children on board
To ensure maximum safety for your children, here are a few rules to respect and good habits to get into:

> Always check that you've activated the child lock so that your child can't open the rear door.

> Never tuck the seat belt under your child's arm. In the event of an accident, this is very dangerous.

> Never place items on the rear parcel shelf. Not only does it reduce your visibility, but the slightest bit of sharp braking could send objects flying in your child's direction.

> When fastening your child into their seat, you should hear a "click" indicating that the seat belt is properly in place.

> Change your car seat as soon as your child reaches the next weight category.
