THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BELLEVUE, Wash. - So who's the real dummy!

A commuter who put a homemade dummy in the passenger seat to sneak into the car pool lane in Washington state was caught Wednesday near Seattle.

This happens all the time where I used to live outside DC...I guess it's worth the risk when your commute is constatly horrific. I think they used blow up dolls though...ugh!

If this dummy would have just buckled up he probably would not have gotten a ticket.

Can't blame him for at least trying. I was thinking about doing the same thing but the HOV lane is as congested as the regular lanes.
