High Occupancy

No, we're not going to be late
for the ceremony. Nearly there Mom.
You know I hate it when you act
the back seat driver.

Uh-oh, we're being pulled over.
What do you mean are my tax
and insurance still okay?
Of course they are, Mom!

Good afternoon, officer.
Yes, I am aware that this is
the car pool lane. No, I am not
travelling alone. That
is my mother back there...

Can't you see her?
