Today's award goes to a rather . . . uniquely skilled . . . driver in the Florida Keys.
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."
If that weren't enough, Megan Mariah Barnes was not supposed to be driving and her 1995 Ford Thunderbird was not supposed to be on the road.

Leaving aside the propriety (!?!?) of her ex-husband driving with her to meet her boyfriend, the thought of shaving one's bikini area while driving a moving vehicle is just . . . I don't know. For once, I'm at a loss for words. A bump - or an accident like the one described in the article - might have led to a lot closer and more permanent trim than she wanted!
