QUINCY, Mass. (May 9, 2014) Massachusetts State Trooper John Carnell was working a paid detail Thursday in Quincy, Mass., when he saw a vehicle enter the carpool lane on Interstate 93 north with a suspicious-looking passenger.
Carnell pulled the vehicle over and discovered that the driver had propped up a jacket with a mannequin head on top in the passenger seat.
The fake head even had a little mustache drawn on.
Vehicles using the lane must have at least two occupants, but dummies don’t count.
The driver, whose name was not released, was issued a citation for operating on an excluded way.
