Arizona Driver Tries To Dress Up Halloween Skeleton To Use Carpool Lane—It Doesn't Work Out For Him

Arizona Department of Public Safety

A man was issued a ticket in Arizona after he tried to pass off a model skeleton as a passenger so he could use a car-sharing lane. He was clever, but not enough.

The 62-year-old man was stopped while using a high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane with a skeleton dressed in a hat and strapped to a seat.

“Think you can use the HOV lane with Skeletor riding shotgun? You're dead wrong!" The Arizona Department of Public Safety said on Twitter.

As HOV lanes are reserved for cars with multiple passengers, the driver was issued with a penalty ticket.

The department said that the man was also cited with window tint violations on his vehicle.

Officers ended their tweet reporting the incident with the hashtag #NiceTry.
