This is why you NEVER put your feet on the dashboard
As soon as Audra Tatum would hop into the passenger seat of a car, the mother of three from Walker County, Georgia, would lean back and relax with her feet up on the dashboard.
Her husband warned her about the dangerous habit, but Tatum didn’t care — it was comfortable.
“All my life I had my legs crossed and my foot on the dash,” Tatum told CBS News. “My husband always told me, ‘You’re going to get in a wreck someday, and you’re going to break your legs.'”
Tatum assured him he was wrong.
“I’ll put my foot down in time,” she would always reply.
But two years ago, on August 2, 2015, Tatum’s perspective changed completely.
The couple was heading to her parents’ house about 4 miles away to pick up her two sons when a car pulled in front of her husband and they T-boned him. Everyone was able to walk away from the scene with scrapes and bruises, except for Tatum.
“The airbag went off, throwing my foot up and breaking my nose,” Tatum explained. “I was looking at the bottom of my foot facing up at me.”Tatum’s ankle, femur and arm were all broken by the impact.
“Basically my whole right side was broken, and it’s simply because of my ignorance,” Tatum said. “I’m not Superman. I couldn’t put my foot down in time.”
