ous or fatal injuries in the event
of  a  collision  or  sudden stop.
The protection of  your restraint
system (seat belts and air bags)
is  greatly reduced  by  reclining
your  seat.  Seat  belts  must  be
snug   against   your   hips  and
chest   to   work   properly.  The
more  the  seatback is  reclined,

WARNING - Pregnant
Pregnant   women  must   never
place   the  lap   portion   of  the
safety belt  over the  area of  the
abdomen   where    the   unborn
child  is  located   or  above  the
abdomen  where the  belt  could
seriously  injure or  even  cause
the  death  of  the  unborn  child
during an impact.
Do not lie down
To  reduce the  chance of  injuries  in
the  event   of   an  accident   and  to
achieve  maximum   effectiveness  of
the restraint  system, all  passengers
should be sitting up and the front and
rear  seats  should be  in  an  upright
position  when the  car  is moving.  A
seat belt  cannot provide proper pro-
tection if the  person is lying down  in
the rear seat  or if the  seats are in  a
reclined position.
