This tale of woe begins like many others: a Washington state driver was sick of his commute. Instead of letting the HOV elites pass him over and over, he decided to join their ranks—by filling his passenger seat with a plastic skeleton in a hoodie. The motorist rolled the bones for months before finally getting caught, earning himself a $454 ticket and momentary viral fame. If these crazy confessions of drive-thru workers are any indication, fake skeletons in cars aren’t all that uncommon.
