State Legislature and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are trying to ease traffic in carpool lanes.
Nearly 224,000 drivers will soon lose the right to use carpool lanes. Green and white decals will expire by the end of this year.
The change will affect those who received stickers to drive solo in electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids or vehicles that can run on alternative fuels. Come next year, the only qualifying vehicles will be newer models of near-zero emission cars. We discuss what the new rules are and what effect will they have on freeways.
