“Turn” the back seat into a bed when returning home to celebrate Tet: Harmful benefits

Many people spend millions to buy their car an air mattress, turning the back seat into a bed for their wife and children to rest when traveling long distances. However, the benefits have not been seen, but the risk of unsafety and being fined by the traffic police is very clear.

Mr. Nguyen Vu Ho (in Long Bien district, Hanoi) shared, his family has 4 people including husband and wife and two small children 5 and 8 years old. Although he is working and living in Hanoi, both his mother and father’s hometown are far away (he is in Nghe An, his wife is from Ha Tinh), so every time he drives home, his wife and children are quite tired. tired.

“Recently, I see many websites air cushions for the rear seats, turning the car into a “bed.” I think this is a pretty good solution for the mother and daughter to have a space to rest instead of pretending to sit and relax. I was tired, but I couldn’t finish lying down when I returned to my hometown. Therefore, I bought and installed it on my Honda CR-V to go on the upcoming Tet holiday.”

In fact, many people are looking to buy air mattress products like Mr. Ho to install in the car during each long vacation to return to their hometown or go out.

The purpose is to turn the rear seats into a flat surface like a bed, so that passengers such as women, children and the elderly can recline during long journeys instead of having to sit in a fixed position on the seat.

The price of such a buffer ranges from about 300 thousand to more than 1 million, depending on the material and accessories attached. The cushion can be fitted to a wide range of vehicles, from SUVs, sedans to even small cars.

However, according to experienced experts, installing this accessory to go on the road is harmful because if used incorrectly, it will be unsafe, and at the same time there is a risk of being severely fined by the traffic police.

Firstly, the air mattress is often quite floating, so lying or sitting on the mattress can make passengers more prone to motion sickness than sitting in the seat, especially for children who are often hyperactive and do not lie still.

Second, when using air cushions, it means that passengers sitting in the back seats cannot fasten their seat belts. This also makes the driver and the occupants of the vehicle heavily fined if detected by the traffic police. Not to mention not sitting still, if an accident occurs, the person lying behind can be thrown, bumped in a dangerous position.

According to Clause 3, Article 5 of Decree 100/2019/ND-CP on administrative sanctions in the field of road and railway traffic, the act “Not wearing a seat belt when driving a vehicle on the road; carrying people on cars without seat belts (at locations equipped with seat belts) while the vehicle is running”, will be fined from VND 800,000 to VND 1 million.

In addition, passengers themselves when sitting in a moving vehicle without wearing a seat belt (at a position equipped with seat belts) are also fined from 300-500,000 VND per person according to Clause 5, Article 11 of Decree 100/ 2019/ND-CP.

Therefore, experts recommend that the use of air mattresses in cars should be carefully considered by car owners and should only be used to rest when stopping, not as a portable bed while driving. on the road.
