You forgot to buckle up, dummy!

A commuter who put a homemade dummy in the passenger seat to sneak into the car pool lane was caught Wednesday near Seattle. But it wasn't because a cop realized the passenger was fake.

Instead, the State Patrol trooper noticed the dangling belt buckle on the passenger side and suspected a seat belt violation.

I've always thought about something along these lines... kinda reminds me of that episode of curb your enthusiasm when Larry picks up a hooker so he can use the HOV lane so he wouldn't be late for the (Red sox?) game.

I love that show...

haha, this happened a few miles from my place. I heard it and laughed so hard. We're awesome here in Washington!

"He created his passenger by draping a rain jacket over plastic piping, topping it off with a Halloween mask of Gandalf, the "Lord of the Rings" wizard, a beard and a baseball cap."

I often wondered if people would do something like this. Now I know.....yes.

I thought about it, not doing it, but just an idea.

All I can say to that cop....You're lucky it wasn't Saruman!!

Not as bad as LA, but here you actually have to pay to sit in it. And there are plenty of dummies, buckled or not (cowboy fans). :chuckle:

So a spur-of-the-moment HOV lane BJ's probably not the best idea, eh?

you don't like always sunny? how is that possible? that show couldn't be funnier. the dialogue in that show is phenomenal.

curb is great but it isn't as funny as it used to be. i heard larry david is gonna bring in jerry, george, elaine, and kramer in for an episode soon - which should be interesting to say the least.
