The Week in Politics

A carpool lane is for two or more persons per vehicle. The definition of person in California’s Vehicle Code is a “natural person, firm, co-partnership, association, limited liability company, or corporation.”

So when Jonathan Frieman of San Rafael, Calif., was pulled over for driving alone in a carpool lane, he argued to the officer that, actually, he did have a passenger – namely, the certificate of incorporation sitting in the passenger seat.

Mr. Frieman hopes to use his traffic violation to overturn Citizens United. Flesh and blood humans wish him luck.
