Although it may seem enjoyable and soothing, it is risky to lay your legs on a car’s dashboard.
It should be avoided for a number of key factors, including:
1. Airbag activation
The airbags in a car inflate quickly and with a lot of power to protect the occupants in the event of a collision.
You run the danger of suffering a major injury if you rest your feet or legs on the dashboard when the airbag deploys.
Your legs and feet may be pushed into your face, chest, or head by the force of the airbag, resulting in serious injuries such broken bones, lacerations, or even facial fractures.
2. The use of seatbelts
Your seat may not be correctly adjusted while your legs are on the dashboard, which can reduce the effectiveness of your seatbelt.
In the event of a collision, a seatbelt is intended to bind your upper body and keep you firmly in your seat.
Your seatbelt’s effectiveness may be compromised if your legs are on the dashboard, which increases your risk of injury in an accident.
