A creative Massachusetts driver was pulled over and cited Thursday for apparently driving in the carpool lane with a mannequin in the passenger seat.
The vehicle was traveling northbound on Route 93 in Quincy, Massachusetts, when a state trooper discovered the driver had propped up a work jacket with a mannequin head to create the appearance of a passenger, New England Cable News reported.
The driver of the vehicle was cited for operating on an excluded way.
Drivers are permitted to drive in the carpool lanes -- known as HOV lanes -- if the vehicle is carrying at least two people.
