    Hybrids in the HOV


    Hi - I am working on an article about hybrid owners who fit any one of the following descriptions:

    You use your hybrid to drive solo in the HOV lane

    You want to do that but your state doesn't allow it

    When you purchased your hybrid - you did it with HOV driving in mind

    You disapprove of the concept of driving solo in the HOV even with a hybrid

    If you are willing to be interviewed - please contact me at hybrids.in.the.hov@gmail.com

    --- I'm also looking to make a list of which states allow it and which don't.. so if you have that handy info please post it here--

    You use your hybrid to drive

    You use your hybrid to drive solo in the HOV lane - Yes

    You want to do that but your state doesn't allow it - Florida allows it

    When you purchased your hybrid - you did it with HOV driving in mind - No

    You disapprove of the concept of driving solo in the HOV even with a hybrid - No

    I only use the HOV lane when traffic is slow in that lane. The HOV lanes are for faster traffic and I normally drive in the Right lane with slower traffic to save gas and pollute less. However, if the other lanes are at a crawl, using the HOV legally with my hybrid is not a bad idea IMO.

    IMHO:
    I am not in favor of allowing solo hybrid drivers in HOV lanes for a number of reasons.

    * Hybrids are most efficient in the slower lanes

    * HOV lanes aren't just there to reduce fuel consumption but also to reduce the number of cars in urban environments to ease traffic and parking congestion

    * Hybrid ownership is its own reward, no further public policy rewards are necessary

    [and do the math on this one, a Chevy Suburban carrying 6 passengers is burning less fuel per passenger mile than a Prius with a solo driver]
