Air-Bag Safety Musts

  • Buckle your lap and shoulder belts. Air bags are designed to work in conjunction with seat belts.

  • If your car has adjustable shoulder-belt anchors, slide your anchor down as far as is comfortable.

  • Children under age 12 should ride in the back seat. Children younger than 8 should ride in an age-appropriate car seat or booster. Older children should use lap and shoulder belts.

  • Infants in rear-facing child seats should never ride in the front seat.
