(WSVN) - An Arizona driver was stopped for riding in the HOV lanes with a unique “passenger.”

The Department of Public Safety shared photos on Twitter of a fully dressed mannequin riding shotgun.

“Another one Busted!” the caption read. “Don’t let this be you…. A driver was cited for HOV lane violation along SR 202 at Alma School, for having a dummy masquerade as a passenger.”

The mannequin was wearing shades, a red hat and a light blue hoodie.

Officials used the unique situation to remind drivers that HOV lanes are reserved for those with two or more passengers.

Violators can face a $200 fine.
