Get serious. Global warming (or cooling) is driven by factors not of this world and you know it. It matters not what you or I drive.

In the 1970s VDOT saw how the express lanes were under utilized. To ease congestion on the regular lanes, VDOT recommended the law be changed to HOV+4 to allow carpools access to the express lanes. It gave people another choice on how to commute to work. That's not discrimination. The law provided an option for commuting just as it did to NoSUV with the hybrid exemption for HOV.

Jody,
The difference is that now, VDOT is saying that the express lanes are overutilized.

Hi MDC. Since this topic is about hybrid congestion, the VA legislature should enact some of VDOT's recommendations (removing the hybrid exemption or increasing the number of passengers to HOV+4 for car pools/van pools).

I'm sure that HOV4+ is well below ending the SOV exemption for gasoline powered hybrids in the priority list.

MDC - not even close! Refresh my memory - how many votes were there this year opposing the extension of the hybrid exemption?

If you can convince the legislators that HOV4 is required to maintain SOV hybrids, including those that get ~26MPG, then you are more powerful than even you think.

MDC - again, how many voted against the hybrid exemption?

It must not just be me who is thinking this way...

You didn't answer the point. We already know how many voted to extend your special exemption.

Do you really think they would go to HOV4 before stopping the exemption, or are you just playing the part of an idiot?

Hi MDC. LOL! The VA legislature definitely displayed their idiocy by their vote.
