It is easy to see that the highly dangerous Bird Box challenge isn’t the safest idea.
If you didn’t think so yet, learn from this one woman who did the challenge while driving which resulted in a crash.
The police in Layton, Utah posted on Twitter about a crash that was sparked by a driver attempting to drive blindfolded. Gratefully, no one was injured in the crash.

The#BirdBoxChallenge is based on the Netflix film where fans blindfold themselves and attempt to complete tasks.
The challenge. started somewhat harmlessly.At first, people were doing activities such as playing drums or putting on makeup blindfolded. Netflix issued a warning about the Bird Box challenge on Twitter to prevent accidents like this from happening to fans of the film.
Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE. We don’t know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes.

Controversial YouTube star Jake Paul also blindfolded himself and got behind the wheel of a car. He help up traffic and hit a few trash cans. These two incidents should be enough reason to make you not attempt the #BirdBoxChallenge, especially if it involves driving.
Fans should just keep sharing the hilarious memes on Twitter instead, because it’s definitely more wholesome and way more funny.
