My reaction to this news when I heard it on the radio getting ready for work this morning- "Ha haaa!!"


WASHINGTON - A northern Virginia driver is holding a $1,000 ticket after a recent crackdown on those who drive illegally in car pool lanes.

Virginia State Police say they handed out the fine Thursday to a motorist driving through Arlington County on the HOV lanes. The $1,000 ticket is for a fourth offense in five years. Police also issued 25 tickets for first-time offenses and one for a second offense.

Police are conducting a second wave of their Operation HOV Crackdown. On one morning last month, officers issued 89 tickets in three hours along interstates 95 and 395.

A steep increase in fines was enacted several years ago because authorities say the law had no teeth. The first offense draws a $125 ticket. That fine doubles for the second, third and fourth offenses.

No sympathy for that poor bastard from me.
There are alternatives.
