NoSUV,
If you paid attention, you would see that I did answer the question. We already know what the vote was, and why people voted that way as it was discussed a couple of months ago.

Loved Giuliani's answer..."I don't drive, I navigate."

Everyone's trying to jump on the "green" bandwagon.

Here's the link: http://www.nbc4.com/slideshow/news/13318578/detail.html



Not sure if your "anti-American" comment is serious or not. If it is, who do you think made the hybrid system that is in the "American" Ford Escape?

Still waiting for NoSUV to put up or shut up.

MDC - the answer is likely neither. And, there appears to be no requirement to do either, as well.

However, based on you ALSO not answering the question, it's safe to say that hybrid exemption would likely remain intact - and you must ALSO know that is what would happen based on you playing the idiot by refusing to answer the question.

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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).
