In n’ Out

Nope, I’m not talking about the famous burger chain, but carpool lanes.

Today’s LA Times has this article about a study done by the OCTA that says OC residents support a policy that would allow them to use the carpool lanes at will during off-peak hours.

Well, duh.

Remember the original idea behind carpool lanes? It was supposed to provide an incentive to rideshare, thus getting the privilege to go somehwat faster on the freeway.

Of course they are going to say that everyone should use the carpool lane, because that means they would get an extra lane on the freeway. Without actually having to jump through any of those pesky hoops of gas conservation to use it.
