Hybrid Cars Get the Boot!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I make the drive from Woodland Hills to Pasadena each day along with many of my Valley compatriots. On the good days I get to drive a Prius, which allows me to take the carpool lane home, cutting my hour long commute to a mere 45 minutes. It's great. But, according to Green Car Reports, Governor Schwarzenegger signed a bill into law that will end the hybrids reign of the carpool lane. The law goes into effect December 31. This is VERY disappointing.

Thanks for the heads up Curbed LA
