It pisses me off watching the cheaters when I'm stuck in traffic. The fine just isn't detrimental enough (and it's not a moving violation on your record) for people that make decent money not to exploit it.
Or allow PAY-PER-Carpool, type lanes. We have a few in WA, actually.
I also don't think Mom's should be allowed to use their 2 year old as "Carpool relevant occupants". It should ONLY be people with a Drivers License (Or old enough to have one). It's not like that 2 year old urgently needs to get anywhere.
What about letting anybody in a company vehicle, you know somebody who is contributing to society actually use them, or heres a novel idea, get rid of them, they are a failed social engineering experiment, make 2 lanes that everybody could use in the space of the 1 car pool lane and get everybody to where they have to be a little faster.
what about motorcycles ? up here they cant use them, which makes no sense to me, if 2 out of 4 or 6 seats in a car can use them ( 33-50% ) why cant a bike which may be 100% full or at least 50%.
But at the same time, green cars can, so hybrids can, im still waiting for the company to come out with hybrid stickers for all cars to cheat.
