10/27/2000 6:23:13 AM
New legislation allows High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to be used by single-occupant electric and alternative fuel-powered vehicles. This includes all California Air Resources Board (CARB) certified Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEV), Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEV) and Super Low-Emission Vehicles (SULEV) powered by alternative fuel.
The Honda Civic GX natural gas-powered vehicle and EV Plus electric vehicle are both included on the list of vehicles currently qualified for this allowance.
