2005 MR2 Ins PRG 10 / 26 / 04 9 : 12 PM Page 20 SAFETY AND EMERGENCY FEATURES Airbag - Supplemental Restraint System The Airbag Supplemental Restraint System ( SRS ) front airbags are designed to help provide further protection for the driver and passenger in addition to the primary safety protection provided by the seat belts . Please read the following caution , and refer to the Ownerâ€™s Manual for more details . â€¢ The driver and passenger airbag Supplemental Restraint System ( SRS ) is designed only as a supplement to the primary protection of the seat belt systems of the driver and passenger . The seat occupants are particularly susceptible to injury if they do not wear their seat belts ; when sudden braking or a collision occurs , they may be thrown forward . To obtain maximum protection in an accident , the driver and passenger in the vehicle should always wear their seat belts when driving because serious injuries or death can result to unrestrained occupants . For instructions and precautions concerning the seat belt system , see â€œ Seat belts â€� in the Ownerâ€™s Manual . â€¢ When using a child restraint system , operate the passenger airbag manual on - off switch according to â€œ TABLE 1 : A PASSENGER RISK GROUP â€� in your Ownerâ€™s Manual . If you do not operate the switch correctly , an accident or serious injury could occur . â€¢ Toyota strongly urges the use of a proper child restraint system that conforms to the size of the child . â€¢ Never use a rear - facing child restraint system with the passenger airbag manual on - off switch is â€œ ON . â€� The force of the rapid inflation of the passenger airbag can cause severe injury or death to the child . â€¢ Never use a forward - facing child restraint system which belongs to â€œ A PASSENGER RISK GROUP â€� with the passenger airbag manual on - off switch is â€œ ON . â€� The force of the rapid inflation of the passenger airbag can cause severe injury or death to the child . â€¢ Make sure you have complied with all installation instructions provided by the child restraint manufacturer and the system is properly secured . 20
