Congestion Versus CAFE

An SOV hybrid and a two occupant gas guzzling SUV are both privledged classes. Why is that? It isn't enough to claim some vague greater public good. Demonstrating greater public good would give food share [http://www.foodshare.com/] trucks access to HOT/HOV lanes. Heck, can the Walmart trucks full of disaster relief goods use the reserved lanes?

We already have enough incentives/disincentives to mold behavior. Like the congeston charge, HOV lane access is double incentive/disincentive for certain specific actions.

Hey little girl, if you climb this pole I'll give you a quarter.
