I'm glad this guy got caught. Too bad he didn't get slammed with more tickets. I don't care that his father was a cop. I hate people who think they are above the law. If we have to adhere to traffic laws so should he.

I told my husband when i die, i want him to stuff me and take me all over with him. I already inquired it to a taxidermist. My favorite is going to be sitting in the shopping cart. Or mabie out to dinner, roller skating, watching those boring movies that i couldnt sit still in front of. So tell me is it against the law for my husband to take the HOV lane with his lovely wife of 20 years??
O Kay.........This will certainly be interesting to see.
BTW, I think a passenger has to be breathing to qualify for HOV status.

Yeah - I had a similar plan in mind, but it hasn't worked out quite as well as I had hoped.

One tip - he'd better stock up on those little 'pine tree' air fresheners to hand on the rear-view...

If they allow those dopey hybrid vehicles in the HOV lanes with only a driver, they should allow drivers with dummies
