You see it every day if you commute anywhere in the Bay Area. People that cheat in the carpool lane.
Bad news for those cheaters....the CHP is cracking down.
Officer Chris Torrez says he looks for people who zip out of the carpool lane as soon as they see a CHP patrol nearby.
When asked what the main excuse people give when they are stopped for cheating, Torrez says, "They tell me they were only in the lane for a second or someone cut them off."
As for the weirdest excuses Torrez has ever heard, "I've had some dolls and dummies sitting in the passenger seat. I've had people say, 'I'm pregnant, does that count as two?'
Officer Torrez says he's even had people try and claim their dog as a second passenger!
CHP says they are cracking down going into the New Year. Don't say we didn't warn you!
