Tara Monroe, a junior at Texas State University, recently had her driver’s license suspended for DWI charges when she refused a breathalyzer. Without a car and no way to get around campus, she got herself a pink Barbie Jeep!

“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 of a reaction,” she told the San Antonio Express-News. “People who don’t know me are shocked, but my friends weren’t even surprised because I do stuff like this all the time.”

After she lost her license, her dad drove her to campus, took her car and left her with a bike to get around. But Monroe wasn’t in the mood to ride a bike and took to Craigslist to find a new ride she could legally drive.

Monroe came across a $60 bright pink kiddie Jeep—with top speeds of 5mph—and decided to make it her new ride.

“It was the best decision I’ve made in college, yet,” Monroe said. She also added that it goes faster when it’s just her so she makes her friends walk behind her.
