HOV Lanes?

Question Corner: July 2017

by Tim Athan

From the July, 2017 issue

Q. Short HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes are marked on each side of Glen Ave. Are they actively enforced?

A. HOV lanes are created to promote carpooling. Those on Glen and nearby Fuller Rd. are a remnant of a federal grant from 1984. "Short arterial HOV lanes such as this are not very useful," emails city spokesperson Robert Kellar, "and we are currently investigating if the signs and markings can be removed."

The lanes are not actively enforced. "To my knowledge tickets are not being issued for this and never have been," emails AAPD sergeant Bill Clock.
