Risky Social Media Challenge May Result in Several Citations

savedFor those of you that are active on social media, you’ve more than likely come across one or multiple videos of people doing the “Keke Challenge”. If you’ve somehow remained oblivious to the latest social media trend, allow us to shed some light on it. The Keke Challenge gained traction last month when the popular musician Drake released a song called “In My Feelings”. The song led to an Internet meme dance “challenge” where drivers exit their moving vehicle and dance next to their car while it is in motion and they are being recorded.

The Keke Challenge has exploded in popularity with plenty of people attempting the dangerous dance, which has already resulted in at least one person getting hit by an oncoming vehicle as well as other videos of drivers falling when attempting to exit the vehicle. While it may seem fun, it is also incredibly dangerous and may result in nearly $1,000 worth of citations in Florida if a law enforcement officer catches a driver attempting to do it. For example, a driver may be cited for impeding the flow of traffic ($164), reckless driving (as much as $500), not wearing a seatbelt ($114), and careless driving (another $164 fine). Besides the citations, there is also the risk of significant injury.

Perhaps the wisest thing to do is to enjoy and dance to the Drake song from the comfort and safety of being inside a vehicle.
