Don’t Jerk and Drive - South Dakota’s Safety Campaign

Can’t say what’s wrong with the auto industry putting out dubious messages like “Go fun yourself” from Toyota, but it looks to be the best way to reach a younger audience. Not even the authorities can’t back off from this type of advertise.

Next in line comes the #DontJerkAndDrive safety campaign being ran by the South Dakota Highway Safety. We’re not sure how many teenage drivers like to touch themselves on a long highway drive and thankfully this “Think Before You Jerk” thing “handles” another safety problem.You can click it, it's safe for work
Yes, it’s all about not jerking with the car in snowy weather, which represents a real trap for beginner drivers, who tend to overcorrect when the car slips a bit.

As soon as a car will encounter a patch of ice or snow on the road, it will tend to not follow your commands properly. A novice could panic and overcorrect the vehicle’s reaction with too much steering and/or braking, which usually ends up in a total loss of control in such conditions.

But more on that you can find out in our “Winter Driving Survival Guide” here, which should reveal you how to cope with the situation if it’s your first icy season behind the wheel.
