Do Not Allow Children to Stand from Their Seat While Driving
It is wrong and very dangerous to remove your kids from their seats while the car is moving. If it is that important to remove them from their seat, whether to comfort them or for breastfeeding, ensure to pull over before you remove them from their car seat. If you want to remove your child from their car seat to attend to them, please pull over at a safe place in order to keep your child safe at all times.
Ensure the Windows are Locked
When you are driving, it is important to lock the windows so as to prevent your child from being trapped or getting injured without anyone noticing. Different models of car versions come with their own automatic or power windows which can be too dangerous for your children if the windows are not properly locked to prevent them from using the buttons.
Check the window locks regularly. If there is a problem keeping your child from rolling the power windows up and down, visit us for a window lock inspection. This may prevent them from getting their fingers caught in the window when it is rolling up.
Ensure the Child Safety Locks on the Doors are Functioning Properly
It is also important to activate your Audi child safety locks on car doors in order to avoid children from opening the door unnoticed while the car is still moving. This will prevent the child from accidentally falling out of the car while it is in motion, or even at a standstill still. Toddlers can injure themselves by falling out of a car door, even when it is not moving.
Your Audi’s childproof locks are controlled by flicking the switch on the driver’s side door. If you don’t know where the child safety lock is located in your Audi, check your owner’s manual for complete instructions and description on how to use this important safety feature.
