Bernthal – Loud Music Can Be Dangerous

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - It doesn't really bother me when the music blares from the car next to me but I do want to share this true story with you.

When I started driving I thought it was cool to have the music blaring as well ... that was until I nearly crashed head on with an ambulance.

I was merging into traffic and the coast was clear, so I pulled out onto Gravois.

The only problem was I didn't hear sirens coming from the opposite direction.  An ambulance was barreling down Gravois going the wrong way to avoid a traffic back up.

I looked over with a split second to spare and stopped just in time.

Since then I save the blaring radio for my headphones at home.

So don't do it to be polite, turn it down to be safe.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
