The morning rush hour traffic and be brutal and the HOV land is something many of us solo travelers stare at longingly. How nice would it be to jump in the HOV land and open it up and cut the commute time in half?
An Arizona driver came up with a creative plan to gain access to the coveted HOV lane. No, we're not talking about carpooling.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety noted there was a car in the HOV lane with a “suspicious-looking passenger.” Turns out it was an inflatable Grinch that would normally be used as a decoration on the front lawn.
Check it out:
Last week, an #AZTrooper spotted a driver in the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane with a Seusspicious-looking "passenger" on I-10 at Avondale Blvd at 8AM.
The trooper stopped the driver & determined the grumpy green guy was, in fact, an inflatable Grinch. (No other passengers.) pic.twitter.com/YcOfZHJVoX

A statement from the Arizona Department of Public Safety noted, “While we appreciate the festive flair, this is illegal & the driver received a citation for the HOV violation.”
This isn't the first time an Arizonian has tried something like this to gain access to the HOV lane. Why is it the people of Arizona are willing to go to this great of length to avoid traffic?
Think you can use the HOV lane with Skeletor riding shotgun? You’re dead wrong! ☠︎ One of our motor troopers cited the 62-year-old male driver for HOV & window tint violations on SR-101 near Apache Blvd this morning. #NiceTry #YoureNotHeMan #AZTroopers pic.twitter.com/wQYY831mNY

The driver of the car with the inflatable Grinch was noted as saying, “It came without ribbons, it came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags.”
Just kidding. But she should have.
