How Is This Very Dangerous Car Activity Not Illegal In Montana?
Like most freedom loving Montanans I don't want a bunch of laws telling me what I can and can not do.
That said, when it comes to this activity, you wouldn't hear me complain.
The activity in question is something I was asked about after I wrote how it's not illegal to drive barefoot in Montana.
Barefoot Driving In Montana
It's an activity that seems pretty innocent, but in the right circumstance can destroy your life and body in the event of a crash.
What car activity isn't illegal as a passenger in Montana?
That would be putting your feet up on the dash.
You may be thinking "what's the big deal, I'll be able to move my legs down before the airbags go off."
Well the website MotorBiscuit details a story of a lady who thought the same thing,
Like many other passengers, Tatum thought that she would be able to put her legs down before the airbag would deploy. But that was not the case. One day, their car collided with another one that pulled out in front of them. As a result, Audra Tatum’s femur, ankle, arm, and nose were broken on impact. She couldn’t walk for a month and is still recovering from her injuries.
It would be hard to enforce a law outlawing putting your feet up on the dash, which is probably why there's not one. So, please while riding shotgun in Montana keep your feet on the floor.
