There’s been a lot of talk about a new law allowing Hybrid cars to use the carpool lane even if only one person is in them. This is supposed to encourage people to dump their gas guzzlers in favor of the hybrids in hopes of time during rush hour as well as money at the pump. Well it became official yesterday and if you own a Honda Civic, Honda Insight or Toyota Prius you can apply for an $8 sticker which gives you CPLA (car pool lane access). If you’ve got any of the other hybrid cars currently on the market (there’s 4 of them), or are eyeing of the 13 new models that are expected by 2008 you are out of luck. They haven’t been approved and don’t qualify for the pass. Yahoo! News has more details and quotes from people you’ve never heard of.
