    Can someone explain something to me please?

    Are the regular freeway lanes congested at 11pm or 2am or whenever they’re planning on turning the HOV lane into a regular lane?

    If they’re congested, then won’t carpoolers still need to use the uncongested HOV lanes? This bill is going to cause carpoolers to get stuck in traffic behind single-occupancy vehicles.

    If they’re not congested, then traffic’s flowing freely and there’s no advantage to turning them into a regular lane.

    It sounds like this bill hasn’t been thought through very well.
