A State Patrol Trooper in Bellevue Washington, noticed a dangling seat belt buckle on the passenger side & pulled over a car in the carpool only lane. Washington State law requires all passengers wear seatbelts, and at least two people ride in a vehicle in the carpool lane.
Turns out the passenger was created out of plastic pipe, foam, and a Gandolf (Lord of the Rings) Halloween mask- wearing a rain jacket and baseball cap.
The trooper issued a $124 ticket & confiscated the Wizard.
The moral of the story: Don't be a dummy! Buckle your seatbelt!
