After losing her license following a drink-driving charge, this student found a ‘unique’ way to get around campus.
Remember riding around on your tricycle, scooter, BMX and umm wheelies (?!) when you were a kid and feeling crazy-cool, and then being completely gutted when the ‘posh’ kid rode by, wearing a kiddie cravat, driving one of those motorized toy cars?
Well that is basically 20-year-old student Tara Monroe’s life right now, apart from she’s the grown-up in a toy car and all her peers are driving real motors…

Tara had her license stripped, after being caught over the limit after a gig. Her furious dad confiscated her car, and after refusing to cycle or get the bus, Tara decided to take matters into her own hands, by way of a $60 pink Barbie jeep from Craigslist.
Naming her new wheels Charlene, after the little girl who pre-owned it, she said:
“Most people don’t find the things me and my friends do very funny, just immature, so I didn’t expect to get this big reaction. This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame… it’s the best decision I’ve made in college, yet.”

Basically, kids, don’t drink and drive, you might end up driving this around… or doing something much, much worse!
What do you think to Tara’s new wheels?
