Texas driver cited for driving in carpool lane with hat-wearing fake skeleton riding shotgun

Oct 26th

I don't see what the problem was... The skeleton identifies as a passenger!

A driver in Texas was recently cited for driving in the carpool (HOV) lane on the highway with a swagged-out skeleton model in the passenger seat. The skeleton wore a hat, as well as his (or her?) seat belt like all responsible skeleton passengers do!

What makes this even wackier is the police's Facebook post on the incident all its Dad-joke cringe/glory.

"We know Halloween's just around the corner, but when Constable Ted Heap's Toll Road deputies saw this vehicle in the Katy HOV lanes, they had a feeling in their bones that something wasn't right," Constable Ted Heap said. "Our deputies saw right through the ruse and issued the driver a bone-afide citation. After a sternum lecture, deputies wished him bone voyage!"

😑

A man in Arizona had a similar idea last year because, clearly, the benefits of the HOV lane are just too good to miss. This skeleton model had more of the "unearthed" look and was rocking a fresh camo bucket hat, though. Peep the drip:
