Encounters on the Road (part 2): Shoveling Tips Video

I drove by as this video on shoveling tips was being filmed by an Affinity Health physical therapist. Three thoughts:

1. They were filming with a Flip UltraHD Camcorder (Amazon Link). Considering the falling snow and outdoor setting the picture quality and sound pick-up are excellent.

2. At the 1:38 mark in the video you can see the ambulance reflection in the mirrored windows. I should have honked.

3. Social media is a great tool for communicating injury prevention messages.
