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?
Utah gets 0 barrels of oil from the Middle East.
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.
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.
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.Clean fuel is a lie! And
giving legal privileges based on clean fuel is being stupid enough to fall for
the big lie.
In an inversion should be eclectic cars only.
Copy CatMurray, UTClean 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.2:04 p.m. Feb.
