    I think you put in the wrong LA Times link to HOT lanes. The article you linked is about converting carpool lanes to regular lanes outside of rush hour.

    (1) The transponder project has reduced the number of carpoolers using the carpool lane by 40%. How is this “successful”?

    (2) If we convert carpool lanes to regular lanes outside of rush hour, then: if the regular lanes are jammed, then the carpool lane will be jammed too. The only difference is that carpoolers will be stuck in traffic as well. If the regular lanes are not jammed, then allowing solo drivers into the carpool lane will not make any difference. This sounds like a very poorly-thought-out idea.
