The minimum fine in California for a carpool violation is $490, so this driver will expect to pay quite a bit for these shenanigans, which by the way, they got away with for 1.5-years. On the bright side, the dummy was not confiscated, so at least the driver has one thing going for them.

We have seen mannequins or dummies in the past, but this was unlike anything we have seen before. It was the most complete dummy I’ve ever seen. He had the ball cap, the glasses, even the mask. The only thing it didn’t have was life,” said CHP Officer Rodrigo Jimenez.
