D’oh! DUI?: Come on Barbie, Let’s Go Party

By September 14, 2015Thomas Law Firm


A Texas State University student is showing others around her campus that life in plastic is, indeed, fantastic.

The student, 20-year-old industrial engineering junior Tara Monroe, blew up social media sites when she was spotted in a series of photos going a whopping five miles per hour down the sidewalks of the San Marcos campus.

Monroe was attending a Waka Flocka concert when she was pulled over by Texas police and refused to submit to a breathalyzer test (perhaps the smarter choice, given that she was allegedly drunk driving underage). With her license revoked and only a bike to get around the notoriously hilly home of the Bobcats, Monroe looked into more creative options for transportation. On Craigslist, she found a young girl selling her Barbie Jeep for $60 – and the rest is history.

It’s the story of a woman taking her DWI license revocation in stride – but Monroe should exercise caution in her baby Jeep, because actually, Texas law could consider the tyke toy a motor vehicle if she takes it on major roads.

What Are My Transportation Options after Getting My License Revoked?

Even if you can’t drive due to a revoked license, you still have plenty of options of getting around Denver without a car. There are people who go their whole lives without cars; certainly you can handle a brief license revocation.

If you only have to go short distances, a bicycle is a great option that does not require a driver’s license. Rollerblades are making a comeback, as well as scooters – not the motorized kind, which you still typically need a license for. For long distance trips, you can try public transit which is rather inexpensive, or Uber if you need to be right there right now.

If Back to the Future II was right, you might even be able to hoverboard around starting October 21, 2015. This depends, of course, on whether the hoverboard is a motor vehicle or is powered by some sort of magic.
