Massachusetts Police Not Fooled By Dummy Passenger in HOV Lane

A driver in Charlestown, Massachusetts thought he could pull a fast one and used a dummy to fool police into thinking he had a passenger while driving in the HOV lane.

Massachusetts state police were not convinced.

The photo of the "passenger" was shared on their Facebook page Thursday evening after they exposed the driver's ruse that morning.

A state trooper noticed the passenger didn't seem right and tried to pull the vehicle over. The driver ignored that trooper and another who motioned for him to pull over.

Police soon stopped the 44-year-old Reading man, who was cited for the HOV ciolation and failure to stop for a police officer.

Police reminded their Facebook fans that the HOV, or High Occupancy Vehicle, lane is meant for two or more "actual human beings."
