4.1.2 Motor Vehicle Safety WARNING
Motion Composites wheelchairs are NOT designed to
be used for seating in a motor vehicle, and the
wheelchairs do NOT meet Federal Highway standards
for motor vehicle seating.
NEVER sit in your chair while in any type of moving
vehicle (bus, automobile, van, truck, boat, train, etc.). In
an accident or sudden stop, you may be thrown from
the chair. In an accident or sudden stop, a wheelchair
seat belt will NOT prevent injuries and may, in fact,

vehicle begins moving.
ALWAYS secure yourself in the approved vehicle seat using the
proper seating restraints (in a motor vehicle, lap/shoulder belts;
in a plane, lap belts, etc.).
NEVER transport your chair in the front seat of a vehicle.
Movements of the vehicle may cause the chair to shift and
interfere with the driver’s ability to control the vehicle.
When transporting your chair in a moving vehicle, ALWAYS
secure your chair so that it cannot roll or shift. In most cases,
stowing it in the trunk is the safest alternative.
NEVER use any chair that has been involved in a motor vehicle
accident. A wheelchair that has been involved in a motor
vehicle accident may be damaged in ways that are not readily
apparent and which could cause the chair to fail in use.
