One question and one question only to keep this little jabfest going:

Which results in less pollution during a given daily commute, 3 people riding solo to/from the commuter lot (let's say 5 miles each way--prob less than that for most), then riding in one conventional gas-burning vehicle for the trip to/from their place of work or other transit waypoint OR 3 people riding solo in their gas/elec hybrids for the entire RT to/from their place of abode and work?

I'll assume, maybe wrongly, that 3-in-1 results in less congestion than the 1-in-1 option; so, answer the question ON AVERAGE for the above framed inquiry.

Thanks for your insights, now get your calculators out and start cracking away at that one.

NoSb

SOV because you can, HOV because you care!

Wrong Rod. Sorry. There are no happy days ahead for HOV on 395. SOV hybrids are here to clog HOV forever. Feds gave up and left it to states. VA General Assembly doesn't listen to anything VDOT recommends and will undoubtedly extend solo hybrids again next year.

I believe I know who you are Rod. I think we have slugged together and discussed traffic problems. I welcome your participation here although it is just a place to vent frustrations. The General Assembly doesn't even listen to their own departments, what makes you think this forum has a chance? Respectfully submitted.

Oh. One more thing. I haven't been on this forum since the General Assembly officially screwed us, but after reading a few of the more recent posts, I see that people are still perpetuating the myth that the hybrid boom has something to do with the environment. Folks, its about riding solo(selfishness). Anyone really expecting to see a post-July 1, 2006 hybrid with three riders? Please. HYBRIDS KILLED HOV

High-breds haven't killed HOV. It is still alive. And debating with NoSUV is wasteful of resources, like trying to teach a pig to sing.

The High-bred debate is a smokescreen obscuring the far more important issue of HOT. The high-breddies won't have an exemption in 14 months or so, and slugging will be an historical curiousity, because the State of VA has abdicated its responsibility for transportation management on I-95 to a Texas company and an Australian conglomerate.

You people worrying about high-breds need a frickin' reality check. And don't forget, motorcycles will be BANNED, that's right, BANNED from using the toll lanes at ALL times.

Ugh... pocket-book democracy makes me sick. (this is not a jab to anyone in particular)
