Arrive alive: Don't make videos as you drive I-25!

Talking on a cellphone and driving: bad. Texting and driving: really bad. Making a video and driving: off the friggin' charts. This clip, posted on YouTube earlier today, purports to show bad traffic on I-25, and it does. But the stopping and starting, coupled with erratic zooms, repeatedly makes it seem as if the person behind the wheel is about to go straight of the tailpipe of the car ahead. As far as we can tell, no one was hurt in the making of this video. Or maybe the camera malfunctioned at the moment of impact.
