Children and airbags

Children and airbags  - Airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS) - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

Children must always be properly restrained. Accident statistics suggest that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front seating position. Failure to follow these instructions may increase the risk of injury in a collision.

WARNING: Airbags can kill

WARNING: Airbags can kill or injure a child in a child seat. NEVER place a rear-facing child seat in front of an active airbag. If you must use a forward-facing child seat in the front seat, move the seat all the way back.
