US : Driver tried to get through a carpool lane with a cut-out of Donald Trump


WASHINGTON: A driver attempting to traverse a carpool path – high-inhabitance vehicle path – with a monster cut-out of Donald Trump's head has been fined $136.

Washington State Patrol Spokesman Rick Johnson said that one sees a ton of things in one's profession, "yet this was something else".

On Tuesday, the patrolling officer had stopped the car on State Route 167 near Auburn in Alabama, and told the driver: "This is just awesome". He then handed him a $136 citation for violating the HOV lane.

He, however, let him keep his Donald Trump cut-out, Johnson said.The officer also did not ask the driver about his plans for the November 8 vote."I don't know if it was a political statement," Johnson said.
