Is this the creepiest HOV lane dummy you've ever seen?

TACOMA -- Well, at least this HOV line violater is in the Halloween spirit?

Washington State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill said a trooper stopped an HOV lane violater this morning near Tacoma. The driver had a small, stuffed dummy in his passenger seat.

The dummy is, shall we say, a tad creepy?

Drivers receive a $136 ticket for running foul of HOV lane regulations.

That, and you know... nightmares. Lots and lots of nightmares.
