Never put your feet on the dashboard of a car

Whenever Audra Tatum, of Walker County, Georgia used to get into the passenger seat of a car, she’d immediately prop her feet up against the dashboard.
“My husband would tell me, ‘If we have a wreck, it’s going to break your leg,'” Tatum told NewsChannel 9. “I dismissed him.”
But on a quick drive to her parents to pick up their two sons in 2015, another car T-boned Tatum and her husband.
“When the airbag exploded, it pushed my foot up into my face,” Tatum said.
The force broke not only her ankle and femur, but also her nose and shoulder.
This wasn’t just a freak accident.
According to a Facebook post by the Chattanooga Fire Department, airbags deploy between 100 and 220 mph.
“If you ride with your feet on the dash and you’re involved in an accident, the airbag may send your knees through your eye sockets,” the post reads.
When she got to the hospital after the crash, the doctors told Tatum that if her feet were on the floor of the car, she “wouldn’t have had any issues whatsoever.”
But she still deals with the pain from the accident years later.
