Driver caught using mannequin to drive in carpool lane
BREA, Calif. (AP) – A California driver has been cited for using a mannequin – not the required human being – to drive in the carpool lane.
The Orange County Register reports Brea police found the mannequin Wednesday inside a truck on the congested 57 freeway.
The truck veered out of the carpool lane close to an officer’s motorcycle. As the officer attempted to warn the driver to be careful, he noticed the passenger wasn’t a passenger.
