The Hybrids (FINALLY) having to pickup slugs or pay a toll is the ONLY part of this boondoggle that I actually like!

Turns out the exemption still applies to I395 N of Edsall and on I66.

What is fascinating is that the Commonwealth has 3 different rules for how motorcycles are treated with respect to hybrids:
- On I395 and I66, both are exempt from HOV rules
- On Dulles Toll road, both pay tolls
- On "Express" or HOT, hybrids pay tolls but motorcycles don't

I guess motorcycle riders have a better lobby than hybrid owners.

The I-66 "clean fuel" exception is for license plates issued prior to July 2011. Otherwise the same.

Also, Dulles Toll Road is a true toll road so everyone pays, not an HOV road like I/95/395/495.
