Shame on you.
That's the message the California Highway Patrol has for anyone looking to cheat their way into carpool lanes. And oh, you'll also get a ticket for over $400.
A motorist received just that Thursday morning after being caught driving in the HOV lane with a mannequin in the passenger seat of their car. The driver -- and mannequin -- were headed westbound on Highway 4 in Contra Costa County when a CHP motorcycle officer pull them over.
CHP Officer Brandon Correita said motorists going to extreme measure like driving with a mannequin to ease their commute does not happen often. But this is not the first incident.
