SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) - People will do anything to get to their destinations faster including disguising a skeleton in the passenger seat to travel in the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane.

At least, that is what the Arizona Department of Public Safety discovered when a 62-year-old motorist was pulled over for violating window tinting and HOV law.

The law enforcement agency posted a photo of the skeleton on social media with a caption that read:

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.

By federal law, states may allow energy-efficient vehicles with single occupants to use the lane at a reduced toll. However, the Arizona man wasn't driving in one.
