Properly secure all cargo with ropes or straps to help prevent it from sliding or shifting. Do not place cargo higher than the seatbacks. In a sudden stop or collision, unsecured cargo could cause personal injury.
Use suitable ropes and hooks to secure cargo.
Never allow anyone to ride in the luggage area. It is extremely dangerous to ride in a cargo area inside of a vehicle.
In a collision, people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed.
Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts.
The child restraint top tether strap may be damaged by contact with items in the cargo area. Secure any items in the cargo area. Your child could be seriously injured or killed in a collision if the top tether strap is damaged.
Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
