A motorist in Oregon tried a “bearly” legal maneuver to subvert the state’s carpool lane, but got busted when an eagle eyed trooper noticed that her front seat passenger was actually a giant stuffed teddy bear.
Scarlett Zibritovsky says she wasn’t really thinking about the law when she belted the bear into place, and insists she just wanted to make her car look a little cuter while she searched for a place to drop him. She says he’d been a passenger for about a month while she “looked for a little kid to give him to,” but does admit that speeding up her trip did cross her mind once she was on the road.
She says, “I don’t normally break the law.”Article Source
