Honda Accord: Additional Safety Precautions
Two people should never use the same seat belt. If they do, they could be very seriously injured in a crash.
Do not put any accessories on seat belts.
Devices intended to improve occupant comfort or reposition the shoulder part of a seat belt can reduce the protective capability of the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash.
Do not place hard or sharp objects between yourself and a front airbag.
Carrying hard or sharp objects on your lap, or driving with a pipe or other sharp object in your mouth, can result in injuries if your front airbag inflates.
Do not attach or place objects on the front airbag covers.
Objects on the covers marked ‘‘SRS AIRBAG’’ could interfere with the proper operation of the airbags or be propelled inside the vehicle and hurt someone if the airbags inflate.
Keep your hands and arms away from the airbag covers. If your hands or arms are close to an airbag cover, they could be injured if the airbag inflates.
Do not attach hard objects on or near a door.
If a side airbag or a side curtain airbag inflates, a cup holder or other hard object attached on or near the door could be propelled inside the vehicle and hurt someone.
Do not cover or replace front seatback covers without consulting your dealer.
Improperly replacing or covering front seat-back covers can prevent your side airbags from inflating during a side impact.
