Phoenix has seen a rash of plastic passengers
on its highways’ High-Occupancy-Vehicle lanes.
Twice this month troopers have stopped drivers
in the carpool lanes carrying only dolls.
A driver was stopped on Sept. 7 with a mannequin
in the passenger seat—that’s a $400 ticket.
Four days later a woman was stopped with a plastic
doll in a baby seat—another $400 fine.
