WORLD Radio - Kicker: A Grinchy passenger

In Arizona, inflatable passengers don’t qualify drivers for the HOV lane


PAUL BUTLER, HOST: Well, the Grinch just seems to keep popping up this Christmas. We told you recently about the Grinch in the Florida Keys passing out onions to speeding motorists.

Well, 2,000 miles away in Arizona, the Grinch was apparently a passenger in a vehicle— the only passenger in a car caught driving in the high occupancy vehicle—or HOV lane.

It turned out to be an inflatable Grinch, which apparently, under Arizona law, is not the kind of passenger that allows you to legally drive in the HOV lane.

The Department of Public Safety tweeted that it pulled over the car in Avondale after noticing a “Seusspicious-looking 'passenger.”

It’s The World and Everything in It.
