Desperate Commuters Cheating in Carpool Lanes
"'Poorly designed transit lanes are doing nothing to encourage car sharing and probably have the opposite effect,' [NRMA spokeswoman Lisa] Kable said.
A RTA spokesman confirmed the value of transit lanes but admitted there were no plans to make them more effective despite 'surveys indicating frequent illegal use'.
In the UK a specialist camera is being trialled which automatically counts car occupants, allowing for enforcement of transit lanes. However, its inventor warns it needs to be coupled with infrastructure upgrades."
