Why You Should Keep Your Arms Inside the Car

Kids, this is the reason your mom told you never to wave or stick your arm out of a car window:

A 20-year-old man is stable after undergoing surgery on his arm that was partially severed as he waved out a car window at two girls in Western Australia.

He was a passenger in a Nissan utility that drove past two girls washing their vehicle at a car wash in Bunbury, south of Perth, last night, police said today.

"He put his arm out the window and waved at the girls as the Nissan made a right hand turn at the intersection, and was struck by a Toyota Hi-Lux twin-cab vehicle,'' a police statement said.

"His left arm was partially severed and doctors believe the limb may need to be amputated.''

My mother warned me against this scenario - and yes, I was scared into never putting my arm out of the car window.

After reading the story, all I could think of was "Thanks, Mom!" (wave with two hands...)

Wow. It's true. My parents told me this story when I was a kid but they just said that you'll hurt yourself and then being the imaginative idiot I was, filled in the details of an oncoming car hitting your arm while your car sped up and then split in 2 and yea, I think I might have a hand out of car window phobia =\ or just precautious.
