Jeff Taylor pans Charlotte’s new HOV lanes, and I dare say he’s right, but I like them, myself. Why’s that? Because to some of us, HOV stands for Homeschoolers Operating Vans.

Of course this is an unintended consequence, but I’ll take it where I find it. My 15-seater is more efficient on “cruise”, so it helps the environment that way, too (11 mpg versus 10 is a 10% improvement). I’ll nominate I-40 between NC 42 and the Beltline for a trial.
