(SACRAMENTO) – Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) introduced her first bill today at the State Capitol. The bill, Assembly Bill 91, would help ease late-night traffic jams in Riverside County by allowing single-occupancy vehicles 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 important tools to reduce traffic and make our air cleaner. But enforcing them after rush hour, which often leaves carpool lanes empty during late-night traffic, is inefficient.”
