Washington State HOV lane violator uses Trump head as passenger

Auburn, Wash (KCPQ) — A driver in Washington State has learned that Donald Trump won’t help you get a ride in the carpool lane.

A Washington State Patrol trooper tweeted an image of a giant cardboard cutout of the Republican presidential nominee’s head.

The Washington State Patrol says someone tried to use the HOV lane of a state highway in Auburn on Tuesday with Trump’s head as the passenger. But a state trooper didn’t fall for it, and the driver was quickly pulled over.

Authorities say that driver now faces a fine of at least $136.
