Whenever traffic hits the freeway, it is common for most solo drivers to wish that they had a companion with them so they could use the faster paced carpool lane.
However, some are more eager than others and will stop at nothing to make this wish a reality.
For example, in Washington, a driver was caught for driving in the carpool lane with a giant stuffed dinosaur instead of a real passenger, according to a report by UPI News.
Apparently, the driver had originally been pulled over for speeding, which is how Trooper Rick Johnson of the Washington State Patrol discovered the driver had violated the carpool lane requirement.
The driver now faces hundreds of dollars in fines for both traffic violations.
