Injured person. Toyota recommends the use of a seat belt. Depending on the injury, first check with your doctor for specific recommendations.
Persons should ride in their seats properly wearing their seat belts whenever the vehicle is moving. Otherwise, they are much more likely to suffer death or serious bodily injury, in the event of sudden braking or a collision.
When using the seat belts, observe the following:
• Use the belt for only one person at a time. Do not use a single belt for two or more people—even children.
• Avoid reclining the seatback any more than needed. The seat belts provide maximum protection in a frontal or rear collision when the driver and the front passenger are sitting up straight and well back in the seats. If you are reclined, the lap belt may slide past your hips and apply restraint forces directly to the abdomen or your neck may contact the shoulder belt. In the event of a frontal collision, the more the seat is reclined, the greater the risk of death or personal injury.
