Only a Dummy Would Try This
Here in Montana we’re so far removed from the concept of carpool lanes on congested freeways.
But even if we weren’t, I would like to think we’re a little less selfish than people who try to get away with crap like this. A Boston-area commuter in a carpool lane was pulled over by police for having a suspicious-looking passenger. Sure enough, the driver had propped up a coat and put a mannequin head on top of it and put it in the passenger seat to make it look as though there were two people in the car. That’s the minimum number of “peeple” that can be in the vehicle to use that carpool lane. He even put a nice little mustache on it. Oh, smooth touch. “Duh” as in dummy!
