Adjust the angle of the seatback
so that you are sitting straight up
and so that you do not have to

and outside rear view mirrors prop-
erly. (→P.145, 146)
ODo not adjust the position of the
driver’s seat while driving.
Doing so could cause the driver to
lose control of the vehicle.
O Do not place a cushion between the
driver or passenger and the seat-
back.
A cushion may prevent correct pos-
ture from being achieved, and
reduce the effectiveness of the seat
belt and head restraint.
O Do not place anything under the
front seats.
Objects placed under the front
seats may become jammed in the
seat tracks and stop the seat from
locking in place. This may lead to
an accident and the adjustment
mechanism may also be damaged.
OAlways observe the legal speed
limit when driving on public roads.
O When driving over long distances,
take regular breaks before you start
to feel tired.
Also, if you feel tired or sleepy while
driving, do not force yourself to con-
tinue driving and take a break
immediately.
Correct use of the seat belts
Make sure that all occupants are
wearing their seat belts before driv-
ing the vehicle. (→P.33)
Use a child restraint system appro-
priate for the child until the child
becomes large enough to properly
wear the vehicle’s seat belt.
