It was just last week that Netflix warned fans not to attempt the ‘Bird Box’ Challenge. Ever since its release, the trending pandemonium of the film has inspired viewers to blindfold themselves while performing everyday tasks.
It was reported that now the police in Utah urge people not to drive with blindfolds on after a 17-year-old driver and her 16-year-old passenger along with occupants of another car got into a frightening accident. They were lucky enough to not sustain any serious injury.

“It’s just inexcusable to do something as dangerous as this, not only to yourself but everyone else on the road,” said police Lt Travis Lyman, who spoke with KSL.com. Lyman also added that police have requested that the driver be charged with reckless driving.
It’s surprising that we even have to worry about this now. Let’s just stick to reading the book or watching the movie shall we?
