So if you live in Toronto, you know the Pan Am festivities are in full swing and as such (I don’t want to call them new), but…..we have some “revised” HOV lanes. What am I talking about you ask? Well our High-Occupancy Vehicle (known as our HOV) lanes have been revised from 2 occupants in a vehicle to 3. Well…traffic hasn’t been fun. You’ve pretty much told the city we’re squishing traffic into less lanes with the same amount of rush hour traffic. F…M…L. For most of us this has caused nothing but headaches for both the morning and afternoon commute. For me…I just chill with my music and drive – but that’s besides the point.
How can we trick the police into thinking we have 3 people in the car you ask? Well my Dear Watson…let’s use some Mannequins SON!!!
NO NO NO…THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!
According to the Toronto Star, “28 year old warehouse owner Shai Azoulay has sold a bunch since Toronto’s new HOV lanes opened“….. OMG!!! I can’t stop laughing my ass off!!! Check the pic below courtesy of the Star. Baaahahahahahaha!!!
According to the Star, “‘Drivers who break the temporary HOV rules on provincial highways face fines of up to $110 and three demerit points. There is no extra fine for trying to fool the police with mannequins’ as per Ontario Provincial Police [OPP] spokesman Sergeant Kerry Schmidt.”
Would you risk the ticket to get home earlier? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Me???…I wouldn’t do it. Knowing my luck… HELL NAH!
There is some minor relief in site: “Between July 28 and Aug. 18, during the Parapan Games, vehicles with just two occupants will also be able to use HOV lanes.”
Thank You OPP!!!
Thank You Toronto Star for this AWESOME-SAUCE ARTICLE! LOLOLOL!!
