A New York woman was pulled over Thursday after police realized she was riding with a fake passenger in order to use the carpool lane.

 

According to The Associated Press, the driver had made her passenger out of a pile of clothes and a baseball hat, and even went as far as to give the dummy a briefcase.

 

The woman was ticketed and released.
