Arizona: PHEV news RE: car pool lane usage

https://azdot.gov/motor-vehicles/veh...-plate-program

After March 2, no new phev plates will be issued. Previously granted plates can continue to be used but if replaced by another phev, the new one will not qualify even if it would have qualified previously.

I had two reasons to get hybrids: protecting the environment and usage of the car pool lanes. Now they are taking away one of my reasons. Makes it more likely that I will hang on to my 2018 530e longer; good thing I have GEICO mechanical breakdown insurance on top of BMW's warranty.

Why should Hybrid cars have access to carpool lanes? They aren't any more efficient than a normal economy car at highway speeds.

I'd be fully supportive of a specialty lane for Prius drivers. So they can go 50% slower than the rest of traffic in peace and stay the F out of my way.

Car pool lanes became car fool lanes when they started letting EVs and Hybrids in regardless of the number of occupants.
