Safe Driving

For Safe Driving

The following pages explain your vehicle’s safety features and how to use them 
properly. The safety precautions below are ones that we consider to be among the 
most important.

Important Safety Precautions

Always wear your seat belt

A seat belt is your best protection in all types of collisions. Airbags are designed to 
supplement seat belts, not replace them. So even though your vehicle is equipped 
with airbags, make sure you and your passengers always wear your seat belts, and 
wear them properly.

Restrain all children

Children ages 12 and under should ride properly restrained in a back seat, not the 
front seat. Infants and small children should be restrained in a child seat. Larger 
children should use a booster seat and a lap/shoulder seat belt until they can use the 
belt properly without a booster seat.

Be aware of airbag hazards

While airbags can save lives, they can cause serious or fatal injuries to occupants 
who sit too close to them, or are not properly restrained. Infants, young children, 
and short adults are at the greatest risk. Be sure to follow all instructions and 
warnings in this manual.

Don’t drink and drive

Alcohol and driving don’t mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability to respond to 
changing conditions, and your reaction time gets worse with every additional drink. 
So don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your friends drink and drive, either.

Important Safety Precautions

Some states, provinces and territories prohibit the use 
of cell phones other than hands-free devices by the 
driver while driving.

Important Safety Precautions

Safe Driving

Pay appropriate attention to the task of driving safely

Engaging in cell phone conversation or other activities that keep you from paying 
close attention to the road, other vehicles, and pedestrians could lead to a crash. 
Remember, situations can change quickly, and only you can decide when it is safe to 
divert some attention away from driving.

Control your speed

Excessive speed is a major factor in crash injuries and deaths. Generally, the higher 
the speed, the greater the risk, but serious injuries can also occur at lower speeds. 
Never drive faster than is safe for current conditions, regardless of the maximum 
speed posted.

Keep your vehicle in safe condition

Having a tire blowout or a mechanical failure can be extremely hazardous.
To reduce the possibility of such problems, check your tire pressures and condition 
frequently, and perform all regularly scheduled maintenance.

Never let passengers ride in the pickup bed or inside a truck cap (shell).

They could be killed or injured in a crash, or become ill or even die from carbon 
monoxide poisoning if engine exhaust enters the cap.

Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle

Children left unattended in the vehicle may be injured if they activate one or more 
of the vehicle controls. They may also cause the vehicle to move, resulting in a crash 
in which the children and/or another person(s) can be injured or killed. Also, 
depending on the ambient temperature, the temperature of the interior may reach 
extreme levels, which can result in injury or death.
Even if the climate control system is on, never leave children in the vehicle 
unattended as the climate control system can shut off at any time.
