In case you were ever curious...no, corpse transportation does not allow drivers to enter the carpool lane. Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper, Travis Smaka pulled over a suspicious vehicle driving on Interstate 15. Trooper Smaka noticed that there was only one person in the vehicle, yet they were driving in the carpool lane. Smaka stated, "The driver informed me that he had someone who was deceased in the back of the vehicle".  Upon looking into the vehicle Smaka noticed that the whole van was being utilized as a hearse and observed the deceased in the back of the vehicle. The driver asked Smaka, "So, he doesn't count in the back?"
