Hybrid cars use the commuter lane!

In many US states hybrid vehicles are allowed to use the commuter lane even when there are no passengers in the vehicle. Fact: Hybrids get better gas mileage in heavy stop and go traffic than they do on the highway. Question: To realize their efficiency shouldn't hybrids actually be banned from the commuter lane?

Please talk amongst yourselves.

@NickFun,
The lanes you speak of are intended for the use of agents of the collective and is a perk given to those whom conform to the collectives will. It is the will of the collective that you buy a hybrid. If you do so you will get rewarded with the ability to use the special lanes. This is consistent with the mission of the diamond lanes.

@NickFun,
I've seen your interstates out there, Nick. One of them could have been described as a 45 mile long parking lot.

Not sure, however I feel a new law should immediately be put into place regarding anybody who drives a hybrid with a bumper sticker, makeshift sign stuck to a window, or vanity plate advertising their car's superior mpg: should be completely legal to beat the ever-living piss out of said self-righteous d-bags in public.

@Slappy Doo Hoo,
Unless he were standing beside the vehicle, soliciting a ride, while carrying a discharged battery.

@roger,
Roger you are probably referring to the 405 where hybrids get fantastic gas mileage and there is no commuter lane.

@NickFun,
I assumed it was just a subtle way of rewarding the rich....

Yes there is a commuter lane on 405 - all the way from L.A. to San Clemente,
I have used it many times. No, hybrids should not use the commuter lane,
as they're way to slow and tie up traffic. They should use the train tracks!

@CalamityJane,
I haven't noticed it on the 405 in LA Calamity. I don't usually go further than the 101. Assuming there is a commuter lane it must get bogged down in the traffic.
