SAAB "ON-BOARD" SAFETY CARD IS INDUSTRY FIRST
NORCROSS, Ga. -- Taking a cue from its aircraft heritage, Saab cars now come
equipped with on-board safety cards -- a quick-reference summary of
important safety information of immediate use to the Saab driver and
passengers. Because many motorists overlook key safety features such as
proper head restraint position, or they may be unfamiliar with the feel and
proper operation of technology such as ABS, a quick review of the safety
card -- similar to those found in airliner seatbacks -- helps drivers and
passengers take full advantage of Saab's safety equipment.
The Swedish automaker will include a model-specific version of its on-board
safety card in each Saab 900 and Saab 9000 imported after May 1, 1996. The
two-sided 5-by-8-inch cards highlight key occupant safety topics such as
correct safety belt position, proper driving position in relation to the
driver-side air bag, child seat placement, ABS behavior and how to properly
transport and secure heavy, bulky items in the rear seat or trunk.
An industry first, the durable Saab safety cards are designed to fit into
the cars' front- door or seatback pockets for quick reference.
