HAhahaha!!! Glad that the guy got away with it for a while anyway! We all pay taxes to build these roads...we should all be able to use them fully- just make the HOV a regular lane, and it would ease traffic more for everyone, and make things generally smoother.

Apparently your a moron. He was conducting an HOV check genius. With a name like "ZED" you might want to think before you write.

Ah, Mr. Timothy Tietjen, I presume, eh there ... um ... "Zed?" You must certainly be feeling like a real r-tard about now. Real sorry 'bout that, skippy. I'll bet she's too embarrassed to go clubbing with you anymore, too.

Super post tho, son - we certainly don't want to see more police officers like Offcr. Daley starting to get the idea they're expected to, like, enforce traffic laws even when they're violated by jerkweeds like us who are special. What a nightmare that would be, hey?

Welp, gotta go - I'm driving, and my cellphone just started ringing. Keep the shiny side up, playah!
