A university student has found a novel new way to get around her driving ban – By taking to the roads in a battery-powered Barbie Jeep.
Tara Monroe, a 20-year old Industrial Engineering student at Texas State University had her license suspended after refusing a breathalyser test when stopped by police.
As a result her father confiscated her car from her – But that didn’t stop the plucky youngster, who subsequently purchased a bright pink, plastic Barbie Jeep from Craigslist. Despite the fact that it needs to be charged up regularly, it struggles to go up hills, and it’s top speed is a maximum of just 5mph, Tara is overjoyed with her new method of transport.
Safe driving from Britannia!
