With the nice weather coming drivers and passengers are dreaming of rolling down the windows with their sunglasses on, the wind in their hair, feet on the dash. But not so fast. Putting your feet up on the dash can turn and minor collision into a life threatening situation.
When the airbag opens up, it does so with quite a bit of force. This force can break your spine in the blink of an eye causing paralysis and even death. It only takes a minor collision to set off most airbags – about 10 to 15 mph, and even at that speed there is no time to react. It is crucial to your safety that driver and passengers remain seated in the proper position, with safety belts.
I found a few other Auto Accident Safety Tips and an article about a woman paralyzed in an accident that she might have walked away from, had she not had her feet on the dashboard at the time.
So enjoy the beautiful spring weather, and drive safely!
