Before starting your vehicle, adjust your seat, adjust both
inside and outside mirrors, and fasten your seat belts.
Be sure to turn off the engine if you want to rest or
sleep in your car. Accidents can be caused by
inadvertently moving the gear selection lever or by
pressing the accelerator pedal. This may cause ex-
cessive heat in the exhaust system, resulting in
overheating and vehicle fire which may cause seri-
ous or fatal injuries.
NEVER leave children alone in a vehicle. Leaving
children in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a
number of reasons. A child or others could be
seriously or fatally injured. Don’t leave the keys in
the ignition. A child could operate power windows,
other controls, or move the vehicle
Do not leave children or animals inside parked
vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat build up may
cause serious injury or death.
