A New York driver faces a $135 fine for driving solo in the HOV lane. She thought she could skirt the law by placing a be-scarfed mannequin in the passenger seat. What foiled her nefarious plans? It turns out that the cops thought it was too cloudy a day for the passenger to be wearing sun glasses, and pulled the duo over to check it out. Sounds like probable cause to me.
So if you’re planning on trying a similar scheme make sure that – if you happen upon the Long Island Expressway in Suffolk County – to let the dummy do the driving.
