Colorado Clean Pass Act Would Allow Electric Vehicles To Use HOV Lanes For Free

Drivers of electric vehicles may get a break on carpool lanes, no matter how many passengers are in your car. One state lawmaker has introduced the Colorado Clean Pass Act.

The proposal allows electric vehicle owners to use HOV lanes for free and all other express lanes for half price. Drivers would pay $35 when they register their car to get a transponder.

Transportation is the number one cause of greenhouse gas pollution but the sponsor says there’s also an economic benefit to electric vehicles.
