Motorist uses fake skeleton as a passenger

The plastic skeleton - complete with a spooky outfit - had a cool box between its legs and was secured to the seat with rope.

A motorist who plonked a fake skeleton in his passenger seat so he could use a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane has been fined. Police in Arizona stopped the 62-year-old man after spotting the odd-looking companion in his front seat.

The plastic skeleton - complete with a spooky outfit and a camouflage bucket hat - had a cool box between its legs and was secured to the seat with yellow rope.

Alas, officers saw right through the driver’s stunt.

Arizona’s Department of Public Safety tweeted: “Think you can use the HOV lane with Skeletor riding shotgun? You’re dead wrong!

“One of our motor troopers cited the 62-year-old male driver for HOV & window tint violations on SR-101 near Apache Blvd.’’

High occupancy vehicle lanes are used to ease traffic congestion for motorists with passengers in the car.
