Highway 1 HOV Lane Suspended Nightly Until 2013

Quote:
The B.C. Government is removing the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane restriction on Highway 1 beginning tonight, April 19.

Due to construction of overpasses and on the widening of the inter-urban corridor, the HOV lanes between Grandview Highway and the Port Mann Bridge will be open to lone drivers at night, between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Regular HOV restrictions will continue to be in effect from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

A bulletin from the B.C. Government's Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project Group said that the night-time change will be in effect seven days a week, until sometimes in 2013, when construction should be done.

The HOV lanes on Highway 1 were introduced in 1998 to encourage carpooling, and are usually restricted 24 hours a day to bus traffic and vehicles carrying at least two people.

I always use the hov lane to get by slow ass drivers clogging up the regular lanes but once I'm passed them then I get out. I see people who are by themselves just sit in there and rip it

It makes sense since during rush hour they need to leave an empty lane to act as an emergency lane as well. (police, Ambulance, firetrucks)

Not only that, but there is also always a bunch of cops along that road(community police station i think it is?).
So its pretty risky going above 30 on that road during the day.
