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
