Don’t Put Your Feet Up and Relax

  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!

  1. Hello Again:

    A small application but an important one.

    Is there any reason that Aquapel cannot be used on eyeglasses/sun glasses that are polycarbonate??? It should result in clearer sight and keep things easier to see in downpours. I spend time in SE Asia and downpours make me take off glasses be cause I cannot see well!! What say you!!!

  2. Ed,

    Aquapel definitely CANNOT be used on polycarbonate eyeglasses – or any other type of plastic.
    Aquapel is made to chemically bond to glass surfaces and if used on plastic it will turn the surface white and is not removable due to the chemical reaction on the surface.
    However, it could be used on the old fashioned glass lens glasses, but not many people are sporting glass lenses these days.
    I hate to say it, but this might be one instance where you would want to try a silicone based product that simply coats the surface with a film.
