(Newser) – An 18-year-old New Zealand woman had to go to the hospital and pay a fine after a drunken dare—flash oncoming traffic—caused one motorist to plow into her. Cherelle Dudfield escaped the accident with minor cuts and bruises, but police were not amused. “This girl put herself at risk with the actions that she undertook,” an officer tells 3 News. “Not only herself, but the motorists on the road."

After being fined around $200 for her transgression, Dudfield appears to have gained some perspective—and wisdom. “Don't be me,” she says. “Don't be stupid, don't get drunk and stand in the middle of the road and flash anyone, 'cause it hurts when you get hit.”
