Kiki, it's OK if you don't love Drake. But, can you please stop causing all these road safety hazards? The National Transportation Safety Board, charged with investigating significant transportation accidents, has asked Drake fans to stop doing the #InMyFeelings challenge.
The dance phenomenon, set to Drake’s “In My Feelings” and started by comedian Shiggy, involves passengers, even drivers (!), jumping out of moving cars to dance. Though the vehicle is in neutral and meant to ride slowly beside the dancer, this doesn’t make it any less dangerous.
“There’s a time and place for everything, but our nation’s highways and roadways are no place for the #InMyFeelings challenge,” NTSB Chief of Safety Nicholas Worrell told The Blast.
The social media craze has attracted folks around the world but hasn’t had much success in making them any more coordinated. According to the New York Post, many trying to show off their moves end up falling out of the car instead, finishing with a road rash instead of a choreographed success.
“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in the U.S.,” Worrell said. “Hopping out of a moving vehicle or jumping into lanes of traffic to show your dance moves is foolish and dangerous – to you and those around you.”
