Safety precautions when using testers and measuring instruments during  
a road test  
Risk of injury caused by unsecured testing and measuring in‐  
struments  
When the front passenger airbag is triggered in an accident, in‐

– Have a second person operate the test and measuring  
equipment on the rear seat.
