The more snugly the belt ts over your child's body, the safer your child will be. There-
fore, avoid having your child wear thick clothes under the belt.
• On long journeys, take regular breaks in order to give your child a chance to run
about and play.

your child's feet will not knock against the backrest of the front seat (to prevent
the risk of injury).

cause injury to other occupants in the vehicle. Therefore, please always ensure
