Shaving and driving – please don’t
By QMI Agency
Don’t text while you drive. Don’t shave while you drive. And definitely don’t shave your privates while you drive. That’s the lesson learned by a Florida woman who was charged in a crash that police say happened because she was giving herself a bikini trim while driving.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the 37-year-old woman was rushing to meet her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit.
Police say her ex-husband took the wheel from the passenger seat so the woman driver could finish shaving.
That’s when her car slammed into the back of a pickup. Two people in the pickup suffered minor injuries. The woman and her ex in the car were uninjured.
“If I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have believed it,” Trooper Gary Dunick told the local newspaper, The Citizen.
Police told the newspaper the woman had been convicted of drunk driving the day before and she had her licence suspended and her car was ordered impounded.
She was charged with driving with a revoked licence, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a wreck with injuries and driving with no insurance.
