As drivers, we’re only responsible for our own driving. Though we can take measures to avoid other dangerous drivers on the road, their behavior is out of our control. Despite how safely we’re driving, we can still get into an accident at any time, which can result in injuries. However, there is something we have control over that can reduce the seriousness of the injuries we acquire. By sitting in your car properly and safely, you can avoid injuries and even possible death in a collision.
An example of failure to sit safely in a vehicle comes from a woman who, back in 2006, had her feet propped up on the dashboard while driving. When she skidded on black ice and hit a wall, the airbag below her feet forced her legs back into her face, breaking almost every single bone. She also suffered from a brain leak, also known as cerebrospinal fluid, that required extensive surgery, and she lost two teeth.
Preventing a catastrophic injury that requires surgery is as simple as putting your feet flat on the ground.
