Extend CA Highway 85, 101, 280 HOV lane until 10am or 24/7 (preferred)

This petition had 153 supporters


This petition is to extend the CA Highway 85, 101, 280 HOV lane timing until 10am. Currently the HOV lane timings for the CA Highway 85 is from 5am to 9am and 3pm to 7pm. The afternoon and evening timings make sense since that covers the peak evening hours. However, the morning hours don't cover the morning rush hour which lasts until 10am in the bay area. Due to this, we're currently incentivizing those who don't carpool to use the HOV lane after 9am and this penalizes those who do carpool. We should be doing the opposite and trying to promote/incentivize carpooling as much as possible. Extending until 10am will allow carpoolers to enjoy access to the HOV lane during the entire morning rush hour. This should also apply to CA highways 101 and 280. 

If we want to improve the overall traffic problem, then HOV access should really be 24 hours (like in southern California and some other states). But at the very least cover the entire rush hour period. Sign the petition if you currently carpool and would like HOV lane access during rush hour and beyond.
