(SACRAMENTO) – Today, the Senate Transportation & Housing Committee approved Assembly Bill 91 by Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) by a unanimous vote. AB 91 would help ease late-night traffic jams in Riverside County by allowing single occupancy cars to use high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, commonly known as “carpool lanes,” during non-peak traffic hours.

“Nothing affects the quality of life of the residents of the Inland Empire more than freeway traffic,” Assemblymember Cervantes said. “Carpool lanes are an important tool to reduce traffic and making our air cleaner. But enforcing them after rush hour, which often leaves carpool lanes empty during late-night traffic, is inefficient.”
