BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) — You forgot to buckle up, dummy!
Instead, the State Patrol trooper noticed the dangling belt buckle on the passenger side and suspected a seat belt violation.
Patrol spokeswoman Christina Martin told The Herald of Everett that the driver acknowledged trying to beat traffic by using the HOV lane.
He created his passenger by draping a rain jacket over plastic piping, topping it off with a Halloween mask of Gandalf, the "Lord of the Rings" wizard, a beard and a baseball cap.
The trooper issued a $124 ticket and confiscated the dummy.

Can you picture it????
Gandalf with a baseball cap?
I wonder what the other cars thought when they saw Gandalf (when he passed them)??
Wonder what the Trooper did with the dummy when he confiscated it?
P.S. Does anyone else think that HOV lanes are ridiculous?
What if you don't have any friends? That is some kind of discrimination, isn't it???????
