WA Considering Raising HOV Restriction
"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."
