TikTok’s new “Lug Nut Challenge” is putting drivers a great risk of being harmed.
As part of the challenge, people are removing lug nuts off of the wheels of random vehicles causing the wheels to come off while unsuspecting victims are driving.
Interstate Towing Inc. in Chicopee, Massachusetts, recently said they have fixed the issue for drivers.
Operations manager of Interstate Towing, Stephen Gonneville, spoke on how severe injures could get because of the prank.
If a tire comes off when you’re driving at a high rate of speed, bad things can happen.
Someone could hit a tree, someone could hit a telephone poll, become maimed or fatally injured, and it wouldn’t be good.
Police in Chicopee said the prank is being seen in their communities.

I often wonder who the people are that make up these TikTok challenges, but this has to be one of the dumbest challenges I’ve ever heard of.
Please beware of the “Lug Nut Challenge” and advise friends, family, and others to beware and be cautious when driving.
