Transporting children safely BMW 650i

To transport children safely in a BMW 650i, it is important to ensure that all passengers are properly secured using seat belts or child safety seats, and that the seats are adjusted to the appropriate height and angle. Additionally, it is important to follow all traffic laws and regulations, and to avoid distractions while driving. It is also important to ensure that the child safety seats are appropriate for the child’s age, weight and height and are properly installed in the vehicle.

The right place for children

Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle; otherwise, they could endanger themselves and other persons, e.g. by opening the doors

Children always in the rear

Accident research shows that the safest place for children is in the back. Children younger than 13 years of age or with a height under 5 ft/150 cm may only be transported in the rear in child restraint systems which correspond to the age, weight and height of the child. Otherwise, there is an increased danger of injury in an accident. Children 13 years of age or older must wear a safety belt as soon as a suitable child restraint system can no longer be used due to their age, size and weight.

Exception for front passenger seat

Should it be necessary to use a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, the front, knee and side airbags on the passenger side must be deactivated. Otherwise, there is an increased risk of injury for the child if the airbags are triggered, even with a child restraint system.

Installing child restraint systems

Follow child restraint system manufacturer’s instructions for the selection, installation and use of child restraint systems. Otherwise, the degree of protection they offer may be reduced.

On front passenger seat

After mounting a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, make sure that the front and side airbags on the front passenger side are deactivated, as otherwise there is an increased risk of injury if the airbags are triggered.
