The Mannequin Doesn't Count? Nope!

A reminder from State Police—you can’t use the HOV lane anywhere in the state – or the region, just because you have a mannequin taking up the passenger seat.

Officials say a state trooper working in South Boston pulled over a Mercedes and made the discovery.

And, in case you are wondering- dogs and imaginary friends don't count either.

Fortunately, the mannequin was wearing a seat belt.

Seriously, though, the HOV lanes are reserved for two or more humans in the car.
