Safety advice when travelling with children on board

   

To ensure maximum safety for your children, here are a few rules to respect and good habits to get into:

> Always check that you've activated the child lock so that your child can't open the rear door.

> Never tuck the seat belt under your child's arm. In the event of an accident, this is very dangerous.

Never place items on the rear parcel shelf. Not only does it reduce your visibility, but the slightest bit of sharp braking could send objects flying in your child's direction.

> When fastening your child into their seat, you should hear a "click" indicating that the seat belt is properly in place.

>  Change your car seat as soon as your child reaches the next weight category.
