Driving can be dangerous if you are not fully concentrating on the job at hand. This is why a number of countries have now made it illegal to either talk or text on a mobile phone whilst in charge of a vehicle.
Perhaps there should be a new piece of legislation enacted in Florida after 37 year-old Megan Mariah Barnes caused a two vehicle crash whilst shaving her pubic hair!
In her defence, Ms Barnes told Highway Patrol officers she…
…was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit
Which is why she got her ex-husband to lean over from the passenger side and take the wheel while she tidied things up down below. Predictably this is not the first time Ms Barnes has found herself in trouble with the law. The day before the crash she was convicted of DUI with a prior and driving with a suspended license. She now faces further charges of driving with a revoked license, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a wreck with injuries and driving with no insurance.
The arresting officer Gary Dunnick told reporters…
My phone has been ringing off the hook all day, and I know there’s a funny side to this, but it’s also deadly serious. This is a scary road and a lot of bad wrecks are caused by dumb stuff like this. It is unbelievable. I’m really starting to believe this stuff only happens in Florida Keys.
