Carpool for Dummies

Are people really this stupid? I have heard some dumb reasons to try and get out of a ticket but this is ridiculous. I am pregnant and smart enough to know it does not count as a second passenger in a motor vehicle. My son is a passenger in me right now.

Fetuses Don't Count For Carpools, Court Says

PHOENIX -- A judge says an Arizona woman's argument that she was carrying a passenger in her womb doesn't hold up.

Candace Dickinson was fined $367 for improperly using a carpool lane. But she said because she was carrying a fetus, she should be allowed to use the lane.

I think she should be fined double for stupidity.
