What do you do when the carpool lane's calling your name, but your love of Halloween keeps you from forming any meaningful relationships? Duh, you grab a terrifying zombie-baby from your front yard (or bed, not going to judge) dress it up in a cute outfit, buckle up, and hit the HOV lane together as a family.
Unfortunately for this driver, cops were not fooled by the undead bundle of joy riding shotgun. Washington State Patrol quickly pulled the driver over and slapped him with a $136 ticket for violating the rules of the carpool lane.
The zombie baby's bloody demented grin wasn't the only smile of the day. Officer Gill had a great sense of humor about the whole thing. He took a picture of the pair and joked about how he let the driver off easy for not having a car seat. "At least he's in the [Halloween] spirit," Gill tweeted.
