So stupid! Might as well call them lower, middle and upper class lanes. When I was in San Diego a few months ago during late afternoon rush hour, I only saw one car in front of me and in the rear view on a long straight away. Didn't seem like very many commuters were using the toll lane. What a waste of freeway space.
By 2035, I'm really hoping to have a hydrogen car that can fly over really slow cars in the left lane, safely run stop lights and signs and be wherever I want to be in 10 minutes with no speeding tickets.
When I was in the library a few months ago on a Saturday morning, I only saw one person in the reference section where I was sitting and one in the foreign languages section on the other side of the floor. Didn't seem like many residents were using the library. What a waste of space and public $$.
Wish they could just do away with it and put in a parking lot for hydrogen-powered cars driven by sarcastic drivers like me...
Airtight Case - Thanks for the laugh. Reading the news can be depressing, and it is nice to actually laugh once in a while. Point taken!
It's terrible that people with money can buy there way into the car pool lanes, this idea needs to be buried. I look forward to the time when hybrid cars are banned from the the car pool lanes even thought today I test drove two new hybrid cars.
Car pool lanes should remain car pool lanes.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
