WHIPS - child seats
The protection provided by the car to children seated in a child seat or on a booster cushion is not diminished by the WHIPS system.
WHIPS - seating position
For optimum protection from the WHIPS system the driver and passenger must have the correct seating position and make sure that the system's function is not obstructed.
