Additional seat belt safety pre-      Seat belt use and children
Infant and small children
To  reduce   the  risk  of   serious
injury  or  death  to  a  child  and
other passengers, NEVER hold a
child  in your  lap or  arms  when
the vehicle is moving.The violent
forces  created  during  an   acci-
dent will tear the child from your
arms and throw the child against
the interior of the vehicle.
Seat belt use during pregnancy
Most  countries  have  child  restraint
laws which  require children to  travel
in  approved  child restraint  devices,
including booster  seats. The  age at
which seat belts can be used instead
of   child   restraints   differs   among
countries, so you should be aware of
the  specific   requirements   in   your
country,  and  where  you are  travel-
ling. Infant  and child  restraints must
be properly placed and  installed in a
rear seat. For more information  refer
to  the “Child  Restraint  Systems”  in
this chapter.
The seat belt should always  be used
during  pregnancy. The  best  way  to
protect your unborn child is to protect
yourself by  always wearing  the seat
Pregnant women should always wear
a  lap-shoulder  seat  belt.  Place  the
shoulder belt across your  chest, rout-
ed  between  your breasts  and  away
from  your  neck.  Place  the  lap  belt
below your belly so that it fits SNUGLY
across  your   hips  and  pelvic  bone,
under the rounded part of the belly.
Small  children   are  best   protected
from injury in an accident when prop-
erly restrained  in the  rear seat  by a
child restraint system  that meets the
requirements of the Safety Standards
of  your  country.  Before  buying  any
child restraint system, make sure that
it has  a label certifying  that it  meets
Safety Standard of  your country. The
restraint must be appropriate for your
child's height  and weight. Check  the
label  on  the  child  restraint  for  this
information. Refer to “Child  Restraint
Systems” in this chapter.
ALWAYS properly restrain infants
and  small   children  in  a   child
restraint   appropriate    for   the
child’s height and weight.
To  reduce  the  risk  of  serious
injury  or   death  to  an  unborn
child during  an  accident, preg-
nant   women   should    NEVER
place the lap portion of the seat
belt  above or  over  the  area of
the abdomen where  the unborn
child is located.
