Tip For Driving In The Carpool Lane: Articles Of Incorporation Will NOT Be Considered A Passenger.

Carpool HOV LaneJonathan Frieman of Northern California took his new baby, Articles of Incorporation for his non-profit JoMiJo, and entered the Hwy 101 carpool lane. After getting a $478 ticket for driving solo in the carpool lane, he contested the ticket and what should be considered a passenger on the grounds that a Supreme Court ruling in 2010 treated corporations as people, granting them First Amendment rights to contribute freely to political campaigns. Mr. Frieman lost.

Going forward, if Mr. Frieman insists on buying his non-profit JoMiJo a plane ticket and seat each time he flies, the state should reconsider his claim. Until then – next! [Wired]
