Fire department warns why you should never put your feet up on a car dashboard
A Tennessee fire department took to Facebook on August 3 to share an extremely crucial car safety tip that often gets overlooked.
The Chattanooga Fire Department shared the alarming message, which was originally posted by road safety activist Shane O'Connor on Twitter, to warn residents about the dangers of riding in a car with their feet on the dashboard.
"While traveling this weekend, I noticed many passengers had their feet on the dashboard of their car," the post read. "Airbags deploy between 100 & 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."
While that may sound like a far-fetched scenario, one Georgia woman can confirm that this nightmare can, indeed, happen to anyone.
