Federal Highway Administration Says Virginians Cannot Use Hybrids in Carpool Lanes

September 14, 2004

Currently, Virginia is the only state allowing hybrid vehicles in High Occupancy Vehicle lanes, says a report by the Associated Press. The Federal Highway Administration has ruled the Virginia law violates federal regulations. The Virginia HOV exemption expires July 1, 2006 and it may take an act of Congress to reinstate it. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., introduced legislation in 2003 to allow states to open HOV lanes to hybrids, but a transportation subcommittee has yet to hold a hearing on the matter.
