I will make no apologies for incessantly harping on drunk drivers. Getting behind the wheel while intoxicated and thoughtlessly putting the public at danger is a horrendous offense. But today, on the front page of my local newspaper, I discovered there is something worse than drinking and driving: Shaving your crotch and driving! A Keys woman driving on US 1 a few days ago was doing just that.

“FHP: Driver lacked razor-sharp focus”

“As authorities nationwide warn motorists of the dangers of driving while texting, Florida Keys law enforcement officers add a new caution: Don’t try to shave your privates, either.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a two-vehicle crash Tuesday at Mile Marker 21 on Cudjoe Key was caused by a 37-year-old woman driver who was shaving her bikini area while her ex-husband took the wheel from the passenger seat.
“She said she was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit,” Trooper Gary Dunick said. “If I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have believed it. About 10 years ago I stopped a guy in the exact same spot … who had three or four syringes sticking out of his arm. It was just surreal and I thought, ‘Nothing will ever beat this.’ Well, this takes it.””
