US driver caught by police driving in carpool lane with fake passenger

A driver in the US has landed himself in hot water over a hilariously brazen attempt to use the carpool lane. A Long Island man was pulled over and given a summons for allegedly driving in the Long Island Expressway lane with a fake passenger on Wednesday night, police said.

Police said Justin Kunis, 20, attached a white drama mask to the front passenger headrest of his Nissan sedan in a bid to make it appear as if somebody else was in the car with him.

A Suffolk County highway patrol officer spotted the suspicious set-up near exit 52 in Commack and pulled Kunis over at about 7.15pm, police said. Kunis of Lake Grow was issued a summons for an occupancy violation.

The high-occupancy vehicle lanes Kunis was caught driving in (also known as an HOV lane or carpool lane) on the Expressway are reserved for cars with two or more passengers or buses from 3pm to 8pm.

The same restrictions are in place from 6am to 10am. This article originally appeared in the New York Post and was reproduced with permission.
