Man Crashes His Vehicle While Taking Off His Shoes

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Pennsylvania State Police said a man who crashed his SUV while taking off his shoes was charged with careless driving.

shoesTroopers in Cumberland County said Jordon Rauder, 20, was driving in North Newton Township just prior to 4 p.m.

Wednesday when he started taking off his shoes and lost his focus on the road, The Patriot-News, Harrisburg, Pa., reported Tuesday." - UPI
I`ve witnessed women apply make-up while driving, and just a couple of days ago I saw a dude hold a burrito in one hand and a drink in the other while waiting for the light to change. But I`ve never heard of anyone taking his shoes off while driving.

At the end of a long day at work, it`s a relief to take off my shoes and my clothes, and watch TV clad only in my drawers. But I have never had the urge to take off my shoes while I am driving.

What compelled this fool to take off his shoes while behind the wheel? Did he have an itch that needed to be scratched? Maybe he head no air conditioning in his vehicle, and it got so hot that he just had to take off his shoes? Enquiring minds want to know!

An SUV is a formidable weapon, this idiot should be sentenced to at least a couple of years in jail. He`s lucky he suffered only minor injuries, and he`s fortunate he didn`t kill anybody.
