🛈 Things to check before climbing out a vehicle

Before climbing out of a vehicle, it is important to follow these tips to ensure your safety and the safety of others:

  • If you have stopped in the sun, or in a position where the sun will reach during the period that you have parked, put up a Sun Shield, even if it is for a short time.

  • Secure any loose items: Before leaving the vehicle, make sure that any loose items, such as water bottles, bags, or papers, are secured or removed from the vehicle to prevent them from rolling or flying out of the vehicle.

  • Do NOT leave anything visible in the cabin that will be a temptation for thieves. Rather store in the trunk.

  • Check your surroundings: Before opening the door and exiting the vehicle, check your surroundings to make sure that there are no pedestrians, cyclists, or other vehicles nearby. Also be alert to any suspicious persons lurking in the vicinity of the vehicle.

  • Animals: Ensure that no animals will dash out the vehicle.

  • Unlock doors.

  • Use caution when exiting: When exiting the vehicle, use caution and be mindful of any obstacles, such as curbs or uneven terrain. Use the door handle or assistive handles to support yourself as you exit the vehicle.

  • Children:

  •       For children in the back, the child locks should be on. Let          them out while you supervise.

  •       Don't leave children in the vehicle that could play with the        controls of the vehicle.

By following these tips, you can ensure that you exit the vehicle safely and reduce the risk of accidents, injuries, or criminality.
