Netflix has issued a warning against this, tweeting, "Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE". She skidded into oncoming traffic, hit a auto and a light pole.
A Utah teenager who tried the Bird Box Challenge while driving may now face charges, according to the Layton Police Department.
A teen driver attempting a new and risky fad inspired by a Netflix movie caused a crash earlier this week, Layton Police say.
Police told KSL that the driver, a 17-year-old girl, was driving the pickup truck seen in the photos above on Monday when the incident occurred.
What is the "Bird Box Challenge"?
Apple expected to release three new iPhones in 2019
Retailers like Suning and JD.com are slashing prices by up to $118 on the iPhone XR, according to Reuters and Yahoo Finance .
"Honestly I'm nearly embarrassed to have to say "Don't drive with your eyes covered" but you know apparently we do have to say that", Lyman told Fox 13.
And the "Bird Box" challenge involves people blindfolding themselves and trying to live life normally. Driving is one of the most inherently risky things we do, and this kind of willful disregard for the safety of others should be grounds for an immediate and long-lasting suspension, just like a DUI.
However, police have requested that the driver be charged with reckless driving, Lt Lyman said.
Earlier this month, Netflix warned its viewers against the "Bird Box" challenge.
Netflix already has tried to combat the social media-driven phenomenon, tweeting a January 2 advisory that "Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes". While nobody was injured, it's safe to say that driving a auto while blindfolded is definitely the opposite of a good idea.
