Why you shouldn't put your feet on the dashboard, woman warns

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.

An EMT should have know better. I have never allowed in my vehicle even before airbags. It is just plain stupid. Also, love those idiots that put their foot outside the car while driving. These are just the people Darwinism is looking for.

You never see men doing this, only women. Now tell me there is no difference between men and women.

I was with a sales rep that was taking me out to lunch, years ago, when I had to ask her to remove a Rolodex type file from where she had it mounted on the dash, right on top of the air bag compartment cover. She said she had never thought about what would happen to a passenger is the airbag was deployed in an accident.
