In California, bumper-to-bumper traffic is nothing out of the ordinary. The frustration of fighting traffic or the need to reach a destination often causes drivers to enter the carpool or HOV lane unlawfully. The carpool lane is designated for vehicles carrying two or more occupants. It was created to encourage drivers to carpool to relieve traffic congestion. Vehicles that can legally use the carpool lane include motorcycles, mass transit vehicles, paratransit vehicles, vehicles that meet specific emissions standards and are displaying CAV decals. First-time carpool lane offenders may receive a minimum fine of $481 but may not receive any points on their DMV record.
