Police have bone to pick with motorist using fake skeleton as a passenger

A motorist who plonked a fake skeleton in his passenger seat so he could use a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane has been fined.

Police in Arizona stopped the 62-year-old man after spotting the odd-looking companion in his front seat.

The plastic skeleton – complete with a spooky outfit and a camouflage bucket hat – had a cool box between its legs and was secured to the seat with yellow rope.

Alas, officers saw right through the driver’s stunt.

Arizona’s Department of Public Safety tweeted: “Think you can use the HOV lane with Skeletor riding shotgun? You’re dead wrong!
