Maybe dropping off Easter baskets is faster on a motorcycle?

The Easter Bunny was spotted on one early Saturday morning on I-8 near San Diego.

Officers with the California Highway Patrol were forced to pull over the "bunny" for multiple traffic violations.

According to the CHP, the officer was doing a routine patrol on the interstate when a person in a giant bunny costume whizzed by, no helmet covering the tall white ears.

The officer was also concerned that the costume posed a safety concern as a visual impairment.

The "Easter bunny" said he was on his way to a charity event, and was let off with a verbal warning.

The CHP says they've pulled Santa over in the past--but this was their first Easter bunny.
