A thought just occurred to me - isn't the single-occupant carpool rule about to expire in California? I thought it ended Dec 31st, 2007. Has anyone heard whether it's going to be renewed?
I know they stopped handing out hybrid stickers, and the Feds are getting restless because the fed mandates say the average speed in carpool lanes has to be 45 mph avg or greater, and there are clogs around LA that violate that in spades.
I wish Washington State was as progressive as California (can't drive single-occupant in the carpool lane - nuts...)
