Driving You Crazy

One more reminder before the new HOV lanes kick in on Monday.

H-O-V stands for “high occupancy vehicle” which means there are supposed to be at least two people in any car using that lane. There’s been one on the 95 from the Spaghetti Bowl out past the Rainbow curve, but it was only in effect at peak driving times. So here’s the thing: they’re putting one of those H-O-V lanes in on I-15, now, too. They’re making the entire H-O-V system 24 hours! That starts on Monday, too. yeah! We don’t want you getting caught by surprise. Of course the Nevada Highway Patrol *is* giving a 30-day grace period on tickets to H-O-V lane violators who try getting away with a single occupant car. After June 20th? Some drivers will *still* be “surprised” by the $250 fine on the ticket they may get.

We have a map of where you’re supposed to get in and out of the H-O-V lanes on this web page.

Buckle up, drive carefully and put down that phone!
