All belt fastening points are designed to achieve the best possible protective effect of the safety belts with proper use of the safety belts and correct seat settings. For notes on sitting safely, refer to page 116.

Do not allow more than one person to wear a single safety belt. Infants and children are not allowed on an occupant’s lap but must be transported and secured in designated child restraint systems.
