Toyota strongly urges the use of appropriate child restraint systems for children.
The laws of all 50 states in the U.S.A. and Canada now require the use of a child restraint system.
If a child is too large for a child restraint system, the child should sit in the rear seat and must be restrained using the vehicle's seat belt. See "Seat belts" on page 53 in this Section for details.
• For effective protection in automobile accidents and sudden stops, a child must be properly restrained, using a seat belt or child restraint system depending on the age and size of the child. Holding a child in your arms is not a substitute for a child restraint system. In an accident, the child can be crushed against the windshield, or between you and the vehicle's interior.
