Cool *HOV Lanes in VA/DC* - April 27, 2010, 01:56 PM

All,

New to the Sportsbike scene (even though I created an account long ago). I did a "search" and didn't find anything recent that specifically talks about HOV lanes in VA/DC. From reading on the VA DMV site, it looks like Motorscycles are exempt from the HOV rules, whether it be I-95 or 66.

I assume this means that you don't need to do anything else special when registering your motorcycle at the DMV as you would have to with a Hybrid car ("clean fuel plates"). Thanks for the help.

and true!!
No special registration needed but VA cops are sticklers when it comes to sportbikes. Make sure your bike is legal (proper safety inspection, registration, etc) and you'll be fine.

Federal law allows motorcycles to use HOV lanes, anywhere.

Thanks all. Yeah, I heard to watch out in the NOVA area as motorist aren't too kind to the cyclist (not in law only but also sharing the roads with us).
