My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California (Westbound HOV/bus lane San Francisco Bay Bridge).
My question relates to the rules for driving in the HOV lane with the Clean Air stickers on my Prius. The Code referenced on the ticket is 21655.5(b) VL. (Not sure it's VL as I can't read his writing). I recieved a ticket (Infraction) for driving in the HOV lane after the carpool lane hours.
The sign says "buses only" and then lists the carpool hours. It was my understanding the with the HOV clean air stickers that I am allowed to be in the carpool lane at any time and that the hours listed apply only to vehicles with carpool passengers. What is the law and do I have any chance of having it dismissed? Thank you
