Troopers have radar devices to catch speeding cars and a recent tweet from the Arizona Department of Public Safety proves troopers have really good eyesight.
The Arizona DPS recently tweeted out a rather comical photo of what the department says is a common violation in the HOV Lane. HOV stands for high occupancy vehicle. The lane is reserved for cars with at least one passenger besides the driver in a car.
A trooper pulled over a car in the HOV Lane for driving with a mannequin or a mannequin head in the passenger seat. The mannequin was made to look like a woman buckled up in the front passenger seat wearing sunglasses and covered in a blanket.
According to the DPS’s tweet, over 4,000 tickets are handed out each year for HOV Lane violations.
Would you have caught it?
Busted! On Sept 7th, a trooper stopped a driver for an HOV Lane violation on the L-202 Red Mountain at Van Buren. Needless to say, the driver was issued a citation. Troopers cite over 4,000 HOV Lane violators annually. pic.twitter.com/mfCkz5eXrJ
