Shotgun Blues: Man Gets Ticketed for Driving in the HOV Lane with Mannequin as Passenger

Traffic sucks. We all wish we could just scoot over that solid white line into the HOV lane and cruise all the way home. Well, someone in Canada must have been watching Lars and the Real Girl and had a great idea. 

According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a vehicle caught a patrolling officer's eye when it sped into the HOV lane without signaling. After pulling the vehicle over, the officer noticed a strange companion riding shotgun. A mannequin dressed in a hoodie and sunglasses was propped up to look like a passenger in an attempt to meet the minimum two-person law for riding in the HOV lane.

The officer issued the driver several citations for the offenses and seized the mannequin for questioning.
