    Clean fuel is a lie! Even horse carriages leave pollution.
    Clean fuel is a lie! And giving legal privileges based on clean fuel is being stupid enough to fall for the big lie.

    Tidal, Geo-thermal, Wind, algae...

    all clean, all real.

    BTW - If you don't want to listen to the lying going on, turn off your AM radio shows.

    Clean fuel is a lie! Even horse carriages leave pollution. (Ever smelled a horse biscuit? Similar to cows, which we have considered taxing for their excrement pollution.)

    Most electricity is made by burning something, either carbon based, or nuclear. These do pollute the earth. We cannot make enough electricity through hydro-electric or solar plants to meet the current need, let alone the added need to fuel electric cars.

    Nicola says "The intent of an HOV lane is to reduce the amount of fuel used by drivers". Actually, that is false. The purpose for the HOV lanes is to ease congestion by encouraging others to double/triple up to save the number of cars on the road.

    Agreed.
    That's Nicola Nelson for bringing this to my attention.
    I will be contacting my State Rep about HB23, High Occupancy Vehicle Lane Amendment.

    Typical Utah state legislative response.

    ...limit Clean Energy vehicles,
    but let single drivers of gas guzzlers "purchase" and "buy" their way into the HOV lanes.

    I guess the devil is right - You CAN buy anything in this world, with money.

    Utah gets 0 barrels of oil from the Middle East.

    Which taxpayers paid for the "HOV" lane? Wasn't it all of us? Why should the government discriminate between us? Shouldn't all of us have equal access to all lanes that we all paid for? Do we really want the government to take our money and then punish us if we don't change our lives and carpool? Some of us don't travel the freeways at the same time every day. Some of us are on call 24/7 and find ourselves traveling at any time, day or night. Should we be taxed to pay for special privileges for a few?
