2.2.3. Transportation of children

The cars considered in the present manual meet the requirements of the SAE J1819 standard of safety of transportation of children in the car.

For safety of transportation of children of younger and middle age it is necessary to use the special children's seats and means of fixing interfaced to standard seat belts. Detailed instructions for placement and installation of child seats have to be attached to them, in case of need address for consultations the representative of the BMW company.

Always seat the child on a back seat of the car and reliably fix the child by means of a special children's seat or a seat belt. You do not hold the child on a lap, do not allow the child to stand, kneel and move in salon during the movement of the car. The children's seat should be established on the average place of a back seat. If to use the average place of a back seat there is no opportunity, use side places of a back seat. It is not allowed to use the place of the forward passenger for fastening of the children's seat which is especially turned back since operation of safety cushions at collision can cause to the child a serious trauma or even to lead to a lethal outcome.

In need of accommodation of the teenager or the child of middle age on the place of the forward passenger, remove a seat as it is possible further from a forward safety cushion and fasten the child a seat belt, or seat him in the special children's seat turned forward, and recorded on the place of the forward passenger by a seat belt. It is possible to lay an additional pillow that the seat belt held the correct position on the teenager's body on a seat.

When using a children's seat for which fastening the additional sling is used fix it for the anchor points which are specially intended for this purpose.
