State Police report an alert trooper noticed something a little off about a passenger in a car heading inbound in the I-93 HOV lane in Quincy around 6:35 a.m. today:
After further investigation, Trooper [John] Carnell discovered the operator had propped up a work jacket with a mannequin head affixed to the top of the jacket in an attempt to create the illusion of a true passenger. The operator of the vehicle was issued a citation for operating on an excluded way.
This is the second time Carnell has stopped an HOV miscreant. In April, 2013, he stopped and ticketed a woman who was using a doll in a car seat in an attempt to skip the traffic in the single-driver lanes.
