Night Driving

  1. Ensure that all lights are working and windshield and window glasses are clean.
  2. Drive more slowly at night than in the daytime, as the visual range is restricted at night. Maintain a speed such that you can stop within illuminated distance of head lamps.
  3. Do not use the high beam unless inevitable. It may dazzle the driver of the oncoming vehicle, thus causing an accident.
  4. Use headlamp main/dip beam to alert other road users on turns/crossroads.
  5. Use side indicators for a lane change or turning.

Driving on Gradients
When climbing a gradient, the vehicle may begin to slow down and show a lack of power. If this happens, shift to a lower gear and apply power smoothly so that there is no loss of traction. When driving down a hill, the engine braking should be used by shifting into a lower gear. Do not drive in neutral gear or switch off the engine.

WARNING
On long and steep gradients you must reduce the load on the brakes by shifting early to a lower gear. This allows you to take advantage of the engine braking effect and helps avoid overheating of service brakes resulting in reduced braking efficiency.

SEAT BELTS

This section of the user manual describes your vehicleâ €™s seat belt, airbag, and Child restraints system. Please read and follow all these instructions carefully to minimize risk of severe injury or death. Seat belts are the primary restraints system in the vehicle. All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts to minimize the risk of injury. Sit back and adjust the front seat. Make sure that your seat is adjusted to a good driving position and that the back of the seat is upright.

Buckling the Shoulder Seat Belt

  • Grasp the tongue then slowly pull out the seat belt over the shoulder and across the chest. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the tongue into the lock buckle until you hear a “CLICK” which indicates that the seat belt is securely locked. Position the lap portion of the seat belt across your pelvic bone, below your abdomen. To remove slack, pull up a bit on the shoulder seat belt. To loosen the lap portion seat belt if it is too tight, tilt the tongue and pull on the lap seat belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. Ensure that the seat belt running over the body (shoulder segment and lap segment) does not have any twist. The twisted seat belt may not offer effective protection when required.

Releasing the Seat Belt

To release the seat belt, push the red button on the lock buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the tongue down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully.Tata Punch User 2021 Night Driving Manual 01

Fixed Rear Centre Lap Seat Belt

When buckling, make sure you hear a click confirming that the tab is latched into the seat belt lock. To tighten it, pull the loose end through the buckle until the seat belt is comfortably adjusted around the hips.

WARNING
Each seating position and seat belt assembly must only be used by one occupant. It is not recommended to put a seat belt around a child, being carried on an occupant’s lap. Be careful not to damage or tamper the seat belt webbing or hardware. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.

  • If the seat belt webbing or hardware is damaged, get it replaced immediately at TATA Motors Authorized service center.
  • Do not insert any items such as coins, clips, etc. into the seat belt buckles, and be careful not to spill liquids into these parts. If foreign materials get into a seat belt buckle, the seat belt will not work properly.
  • Do not wear seat belts over hard, sharp, or fragile items in clothing, such as pens, keys, spectacles, etc.
  • Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a collision.
