Hilarious State Police safety message goes viral

Indiana Trooper

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine of the Indianapolis district shared a video on social media Friday morning to remind drivers of a “safety feature.” Though most folks behind the wheel are familiar with this feature, it is sorely underused.

It “not only will help prevent crashes, but also help prevent road rage a little bit,” the sergeant explains.

Of course, he’s talking about a turn signal — the ever-present but often-forgotten lever mere inches from a hand gripping the steering wheel. Perhaps you’ve seen one before.

His video has quickly gone viral, racking up well over 13 million views on Facebook. The humorous PSA was also a hit on Twitter, where it included the hashtag #TheMoreYouKnow.

Perrine is no stranger to going the extra mile to get a message across on social media. His frequent emoji-filled tweets about public safety will make you chuckle and maybe even learn something new.

It’s all in hopes you’ll think twice before choosing to “drive like a knucklehead.”
