    Aucklanders are avoiding or trying to avoid getting fined for using the transit lanes

    The addition of HOV lanes (High occupancy vehicle) in California a few years ago ressurected the carpool. Only the people wanting additional riders to beat the system would cruise by a few known places near their houses & pick up people.

    Californians have discovered that neither the citing officer nor the court are amused.

    A few years ago a woman contested her ticket - she was pregnant and claimed the fetus as the second person. She lost.

    The VA cops and courts take the same attitude - the HOV lanes into DC are protected territory.

    Here in Minneapolis a guy had a blow up doll, rigged with some twine. He could make the doll move (much like a puppet).

    He got away with it for about 2 yrs.
