Texas driver pulled over for using mannequin to cheat carpool lane

Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A Texas driver is due in court after being pulled over in the carpool lane with a passenger that turned out to be a well-dressed mannequin.

The Office of Constable Ted Heap, Harris County Constable Pct. 5, posted a photo to Facebook showing a mannequin decked out in sunglasses, lipstick, a blond wig and a zip-up sweater while sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle.

Deputy constables said the driver had been pulled over after they noticed the passenger was not sufficient to qualify the driver to use the high-occupancy vehicle lane.

"This mannequin may have saved the driver on time and a $3.20 toll fee today, but it will cost her a day of work for court and up to $150 in legal fines," the Facebook post said.

1. Not an original idea.

Although I never expected a Texan too think of such a sophisticate scam.
