And shouldn't we be accounting for size of cars too...since SOV opponents complain hybrids are taking up too much space in the express lanes? If I have 2 in my hybrid, shouldn't a SUV twice the lenth have to carry 4 passengers to use the lanes most efficiently and ease congestion.

The hybrid exemption is just another economic tool to get individuals to behave the way lawmakers believe is best for society as a whole. It will always be "unfair" as long as some follow the carrot dangled in front of them and others do not.

uhhh, since my non-commute driving usually involves taxi-ing the kids around, I rarely drive alone, so my PMPGs will stay in the 50-75 range. How about you, NoSUV?

Well NoSUV, Since you have shirked away from answering my questions so many times, I am not surprised that you avoided answering this one. So the point stands uncontested that my little 'ole Nissan trumps your "high-bred" in the PMPG department since I'm sure that no one can stand to ride in the same car with someone as arrogant as you.

Wait, now I get it: since you commute from LR Turnpike to the Navy Yard you don't use the HOV lanes (as you said previously, you would have to backtrack). WOW, now I know why you are so bitter! You can't compare HOV commuting miles because all you miles are outside the HOV lanes. YOU ARE STUCK IN THE REGULAR LANES WHILE WE FLY BY IN THE HOVs! HA! HA! (Ooops, sorry, I shouldn't laugh)

This really puts your rants into perspective. You poor bitter soul. You are angry and hurt that HOV commuters have access to a convenience that you do not. You are lashing out at us, you want to punish us (by supporting HOT) for using a system that was designed without you in mind. That is sad, just plain pitiful! Now I don't feel animosity, I feel pity for you!

raymond - actually, I was pointing out that you clearly are not telling the truth. You DO NOT have others in your car for 100% of your miles; in fact, it is probable that >75% of your annual mileage is SOV. Similarly, it is also probable that my non-commuting miles have as much HOV as you.

I find it hard to believe that you don't know the entries into the express lanes. Well, most in the area probably know them, but you are clearly "exceptional."
