(Newser) – Florida revoked Megan Mariah Barnes' driver's license last week, and less than a day later she proved the wisdom of that decision, causing a car accident on US Highway 1 in the Florida Keys as she shaved her private parts while driving. " About 10 years ago I stopped a guy in the exact same spot who had three or four syringes sticking out of his arm," the highway patrol officer who busted her tells KeysNews.com. "It was just surreal and I thought, 'Nothing will ever beat this.' Well, this takes it. "

It gets better: She was getting ready for a date. With her ex-husband in the passenger seat. Oh, and he was steering. Barnes continued for a half-mile after rear-ending a pickup, then pulled over and hopped out from behind the wheel. " She jumps in the back seat and he moves over," said the trooper. "It was like the old comedy bit, 'Who's on first?'"

Driving in the Florida Keys is nerve-racking at the best of times, so authorities really frown on taking the wheel while you're shaving your privates.

The Florida Highway Patrol didn't specify whether the woman busted for driving while shaving was using an electric razor or a lower-tech option.
