Keep Kids' Feet Off the Dashboard When Driving! The Scary Reason Why... by Donna John
Summer is the time to kick your legs up and relax, but not if it’s your child’s feet up on the dashboard of your car. Imagine if your kiddo – who is old enough to ride up front – has his feet up when an airbag deploys. Yup, not good.
