“I got pulled over in the carpool lane today…” (joke)

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic resulted in social distancing, but what about carpools?

Cop: Where’s your passenger? Me: Due to social distancing they’re in the car behind me” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on June 22, 2020.

I was pulled over by a cop earlier today,
@MoreTwitty, and he said I was violating the carpool lane rules.
I told him that due to social distancing rules, my passenger was in the car behind me.
