A Washington State Trooper says a driver tried to pass off a mannequin as a real person so he could drive in a high occupancy vehicle lane.
Police say the violator was driving 81 mph in the carpool lane near Tacoma.
A trooper pulled him over and then realized his passenger wasn't human.
The trooper snapped and posted a photo of the mannequin.
Now the picture has gone viral.
The driver was cited for speeding and a HOV violation.
