ROCHESTER, Minn.- It's a challenge that's taking social media, the #ShiggyChallenge also known as the #InMyFeelings challenge.
It has people hopping out of their car and dancing along side it while it's still moving and now the National Transportation Safety Board is warning people that distractions can kill.
It started with the popular instagram video of The Shaggy Show that gained nearly 7 million views.
The NTSB and Rochester Police Department are urging people to focus on the road. They say the #inmyfeelings challenge can be dangerous and get you into trouble by putting their and passengers lives at risk.
The Rochester Police Department said actions like this classify as careless driving and can land you with a fine or behind bars.
Will Giesen is a college student and he says people often take social media challenges too far.
“You never know what can start happening when you start dancing. When you take your eyes off the road and take your eyes off from whats around you,” Said Giesen.
RPD also said if serious injury were to occur, serious charges would apply like criminal vehicular operation. That could cost you a 5 year sentence or a fine of up to $10,000.
