What Exactly are the Carpool Lanes That I See Around Queens & NYS and What is the Violation?

A carpool lane (the technical term is HOV lane) is a special lane reserved for the use of carpools, vanpools, and buses. They are well marked and almost always next to the lanes that don’t have any restrictions. Carpool lanes are identified as “2+” or “3+” which refers to the minimum number of occupants in a vehicle that can legally use this lane to  bypasses the traffic in the unrestricted-use lanes. If you are using the HOV lane with less than the minimum number of people required, you might receive a carpool violation.

How Does a Carpool Lane Work?

Carpool lanes are intended to give commuters to share a car or ride the bus. The system gives people who share a ride with one, two or more people (depending on the road) access to the carpool lane. Multiple riders in cars reduces the traffic on busy highways like the ones in Queens and NYS. The vehicles in the carpool lane save time by bypassing the heaviest traffic. Most rush hour drivers are solo drivers. Since there are few vehicles with multiple passengers, especially during rush hour, the carpool lane is less congested. It is a good deal, as carpoolers save time and have a less stressful commute. In return there is less traffic, especially during rush hour. Those drivers who enter the carpool lane without the required number of people are subject to a carpool violation ticket.
