A WSP Trooper, working traffic on Interstate 5 near Fife became suspicious of a vehicle traveling in the HOV Lane with a nearly two dimensional passenger.
After pulling over the driver, he discovered it was a cutout of the actor who portrayed The Most Interesting Man in the World for Dos Equis commercials.
The driver, who appears a bit embarrassed and on the verge of a chuckle, allegedly admitted to the violation and said of the cutout, “He’s my best friend.” Apparently he was friend enough to receive the gift of a lime green polo shirt instead of the usual tie.
Yet, Trooper Gill presented a gift of his own, a Notice of Infraction for $124.00.
As for myself I don’t watch HOV traffic often: but when I do I prefer Dos Pasajeros.
