Setting and operating vehicle components when driving

Operating Components While Driving
Setting or operating the on-board computer, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving could distract you from the traffic. You could lose control of the vehicle resulting in serious personal injury or death.

  • Operate the components while driving only if the traffic situation allows you to do so safely.
  • Carry out any complicated operating or setting procedures only with the vehicle stationary.

Engine Exhaust

Engine Exhaust Inhalation
Engine exhaust is dangerous if inhaled.

Engine exhaust fumes have many components which you can smell. They also contain carbon monoxide (CO), which is a colorless and odorless gas.

Carbon monoxide can cause unconsciousness and even death if inhaled.

  • Never start or let the engine run in an enclosed, unventilated area.
    It is not recommended to sit in your car for prolonged periods with the engine on and the car not moving.

California Proposition 65
Engine exhaust, some of its constituents, and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

In addition, certain fluids contained in vehicles and certain products of component wear contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Hot Exhaust Pipes
The exhaust pipe is hot when the vehicle is running and remains hot for some time after the vehicle is turned off.

  • To prevent injury, make a point of noting where your vehicle's exhaust pipe is, avoid placing your legs near the exhaust pipe when loading and unloading cargo in the rear, and closely supervise children around the vehicle during time when the exhaust pipe could be hot. A hot exhaust pipe can cause serious burns.
