HOV lanes and hybrid cars

As reported here, the Commonwealth is considering revoking an exemption for gas-electric hybrid cars from the occupancy requirements of HOV lanes.

There are no HOV lanes in Southwest Virginia. The first time I ever saw HOV lanes, around Springfield in 1987 or so, I passed everybody for a while, then decided something had to be wrong. It's a wonder no one shot me, as a blatant and undeserving HOV-lane offender.
