High Occupancy Vehicle Parking Only - Sign 10

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

 At previous post, we talked about parking for Low Emission Vehicles:

- Special Parking for Low Emission Vehicles - Sign 3


Just couple days ago, I saw another interesting parking sign: High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Parking Only.


What its mean?



Fig 01- Sign for special parking only.


It is a sign which is plotted for vehicles with more than one passenger such as: - big cars

- buses (transit buses)

- big vans.


Two type of HOV parking signs:

1) HOV 2+

- means for 1 driver, and at least one passenger.


2) HOV 3+

- means for 1 driver, and at least two passengers, usually more.

In addition to parking signs, there are also High Occupancy Vehicle lanes in roads and Highways.



Fig 03- Empty parking lot


Not all states uses HOV lanes in the USA. There are 21 states using this kind of lanes. Here they are:

- 1) Arizona; 2) California; 3) Colorado

- 4) Connecticut; 5) Florida; 6) Georgia

- 7) Hawaii; 8) Kansas; 9) Maryland

- 10) Massachusetts; 11) Minnesota; 12) New Jersey

- 13) New York; 14) North Carolina; 15) Ohio; 16) Pennsylvania; 17) Tennesse

-18) Texas; 19) Utah; 20) Virginia; 21) Washington


How about with your places or states or your countries?

    I'm wearing a fun printed set in my new post and I hope you'll swing by.

  11. Very clever idea. I have heard of some countries wanting to implement that idea so that more people travel in one car, instead of just 1 person per car!

  13. We had them in NJ in the 90's and didn't help out the main roads then. Maybe now they will be different.
