PHOENIX – An Arizona driver was busted driving in a carpool lane with a mannequin riding shotgun.
It happened on an East Valley freeway Wednesday.
The Department of Public Safety shared photos on Twitter showing a man alone in a car with a female mannequin in the front passenger seat, wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses. The dummy was even wearing a seat belt.
“Another one Busted!” the caption read. “Don’t let this be you…. A driver was cited for HOV lane violation along SR 202 at Alma School, for having a dummy masquerade as a passenger.”
The driver was cited for an HOV lane violation and may face a $200 fine.
