Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual / Sitting correctly and safely / Adjusting the seat position / The dangers of assuming an incorrect sitting position

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Assuming an incorrect sitting position considerably impairs the level of protection provided by a seat belt. This could lead to severe or even fatal injuries. The risk of severe or fatal injuries is especially increased when a triggering airbag strikes an occupant who has assumed an incorrect sitting position. The driver is responsible for all vehicle passengers, especially if they are children.

The following list contains examples of sitting positions that could be dangerous for all occupants.
