"One driver, one passenger. That's all it takes to drive in almost all of the Seattle area's 205 miles of HOV lanes.Are they too crowded? Should HOV-2 become HOV-3?Last year traffic in five of 14 HOV (high-occupancy vehicle) lanes monitored by University of Washington researchers failed to meet the state Department of Transportation's 11-year-old performance standard. The threshold: an average rush-hour speed of at least 45 mph at least nine weekdays out of 10."
