Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: The dangers of assuming an incorrect sitting position

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

If the seat belts are not worn or are worn incorrectly, the risk of severe or fatal injuries increases. Seat belts can provide optimal protection only if seat belt routing is correct. An incorrect sitting position considerably impairs the level of protection provided by a seat belt. This could lead to severe or even fatal injuries. The risk of severe or fatal injuries is especially increased when a deploying airbag strikes an occupant who has assumed an incorrect sitting position. The driver is responsible for all vehicle passengers, especially if they are children.

The following list contains examples of sitting positions which could be dangerous for all occupants.

Whenever the vehicle is in motion:

WARNING

Every incorrect sitting position in the vehicle increases the risk of severe or fatal injuries in the event of an accident or sudden driving or braking manoeuvre.
