SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Drivers who want to use some of California’s most crowded carpool lanes may have to track down another passenger to ride with them.
The Orange County Register reports that Caltrans is considering requiring a vehicle have three people in it, not just two, to qualify for the state’s most congested carpool lanes.
