Green License Plates in Ontario Come with Privileges

Vehicles bearing the new plates will be eligible for a number of special perks, including use of recharging stations and special parking spaces. But the most compelling benefit the new plates will offer is allowing vehicles to use carpool lanes, even if there's just one person in the vehicle. The carpool lane benefit extends until 2015.

I don't think you can argue with this (apart from maybe carping about hybrids not being all that). You've got to give it some carrot, it can't be all about stick!

I hope every state takes Ontario's idea into consideration. The problem I see though is that the price tag for this. They'd need to make sure there is enough recharging stations to use for it to be even worth it too.

I think Arizona and several other states have been doing the same thing for a few years now. When I lived in AZ I had a special plate for alternate fuel (hybrid) and it had clouds and a blue sky. As long as you had the plate you could use the HOV lanes all you wanted.
dumb idea

Dumb idea, the government could raise more money by auctioning off access to carpool lanes rather than just giving access away for free.

Great idea! "But the most compelling benefit the new plates will offer is allowing vehicles to use carpool lanes, even if there's just one person in the vehicle." This is indeed a very attractive incentive that doesn't cost the taxpayer. I don't have a problem with "just one person in the vehicle" either, after all, the purpose of 50 mg cialis the carpool lane is to follow link cialis 20 cut down on vehicle emissions.I also like the idea of a cool license plate. It strikes me that these are very practical ideas for cash-strapped Provinces.
