The Party is coming to an end

There is a new report saying that Caltrans should limit hybrids in carpool lane. I am not surprised by this. It had to come to an end sometime. We cannot have millions of Hybrids driving in the HOV lane.

I think one of the problems is defining hybrids. A hybrid SUV is better than a regular SUV, but it gets worst highway millage than my Corolla. If I have an extra passenger in my Corolla the MPG/person is a lot better than a solo hybrid SUV.

I do not think hybrids still need this kind of help for sales. I think it is more important to encouraging carpooling that the purchase of Hybrids. We will have to see what happens from here.
