CRUMBS! 19 DEC 14

IF YOU’RE driving these Christmas holidays, we hope you’ll be extra safe, even following the news that a safe driving campaign has been cancelled in South Dakota for being too risqué.

Apparently, the ‘Don’t Jerk and Drive’ ads, aimed at raising awareness about the dangers of jerking the steering wheel on icy roads, also raised eyebrows, but intentionally, Associated Press reported.

The Department of Public Safety’s message was that people should keep their cars out of a ditch and their minds out of the gutter, Highway Safety Director Lee Axdahl told the publication.

However, his boss pulled the ads, saying he didn’t want innuendo to distract from saving lives on the road, the publication reported.
