Heh about 10 years ago my parents were driving down the HOV lane. They were doing about 5 miles over the limit, but this douchebag behind them kept tailgating my dad, honking, all that sort of crap (HOV is a one-lane road on the highway). When my dad looked in the mirror, he saw that the passenger was a mannequin with a wig on. Well the exit almost always has a cop posted there, and as my dad was driving by the cop, he rolled his window down and kept pointing his finger back at the car behind him mouthing "FAKE!" Sure enough, the cop pulled the guy over.

State Trooper John Carnell was working a paid detail

As opposed to volunteering his time for free?

My friend's uncle was a coroner. He told us he just put whatever corpse he just picked up in the front seat so he could ride the HOV lane.

We would never ride anywhere with him.

Do state troopers ever work unpaid details?

That was a mannequin riding shotgun.  The dummy was in the driver's seat.

fusillade762: State Trooper John Carnell was working a paid detail

It's a Mass thing. A paid detail is when a cop is working overtime overseeing a construction project. It's the law that it has to be a cop and not a civilian directing traffic.

This is exactly the kind of story the police union will trot out when the legislature tries to take away their gravy train.

There was a thread about traffic about DC traffic that some Farkers mentioned another solution. Evidently people congregate in various places around the Beltway and get rides from solo drivers, so the drivers can use the HOV lane and the riders can get into town.

My brother tells me the same thing happens in Indonesia, except the people you are picking up are there only to help you get in the HOV lane, and you basically pay them enough for them to get a bowl of rice so they don't starve.

So in some places, being a passenger is a profession, but it pays starvation wages.

Yep.  The absolute minimum speed in that situation is 9 over, unless you see a cop or your radar detector is going off.  If there isn't a concrete divider, you get out of the lane and let the other car pass.

And you NEVER rat out somebody creative enough to set up a dummy.

Hopefully you realize that a good dummy would not look like a dummy. "Clever" would be a doll so good you never got caught.

Yeah, the dummy is sitting on the passenger side.
