I guess it would depend upon when the body was picked up, yes? If the person who is supposed to make the death declaration hasn't already done so, then wouldn't the body still count?

No.

Uh, still no.


There have been women who, while pregnant have tried to claim free HOV passage.

Still no.

Why not.

There's a lot of space and time in NV where the NHP just aren't busy.

I wonder why that pic was used. It doesn't appear to have anything to do with the article posted.

..and

You guys (GGD, anyway) are kidding right?

The letter and spirit are to reduce traffic.

Now if the guy in the casket were a zombie and a passenger, not freight, sure, why not. Vampires wouldn't count unless they could stand the daylight or someone was driving in pre-dawn HOV hours.

One woman claimed a fetus qualified as a second passenger and went to court to fight the cite. She failed to bring proof that she was even pregnant, not that it would have helped. It cost her big time.

CA and the CHP want HOV violators to be 10% or less of the vehicles in the lane.

I believe they rely on the Honor System.

But if you were not pronounced dead by an appropriate authority, you are legally still alive.

Many ambulances arrive with corpses from home...but the time of death is whatever the doctor records at the hospital.


What about a wife, driving her husband in the HOV...and he's already had a heart attack and died? She'd be okay, right? I mean the cops wouldn't give her a ticket, right?
