Twin Falls Sheriff’s Office shares distracted driving video

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and the Twin Falls Sheriff’s Office has shared a video compilation on how the results of distracted driving can be life threatening. The video is from across the country and involves many different types of drivers.

DISCLAIMER: Some people may find this video disturbing. Watch at your own risk

This video is absolutely insane. I can’t believe how fast things can go from an open road in front of you to, bam! It only takes a split second to go from good to bad when it comes to the open road. This is especially true for highways due to the increase in speed.

Some of these people can see the cell phone in their hands or right in front of their face. Some of them were able to recover and not cause a serious accident. I was surprised how many of them were tractor-trailer drivers.

I know everyone has driven Blue Lakes or Poleline and seen people texting, talking on the phone with their hands, or much worse. Distracted driving doesn’t just include using your cell phone. It also includes things like putting on makeup, eating a burger, or even worse, cutting your toenails.

Please ensure that you drive responsibly. Things can happen in a split second. I’m also curious what is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen someone do while driving. I saw someone curl their hair while going 90 on the freeway. Scary stuff. No distracted driving!
