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?
