Carpool lane (il)logic
A driver of a Prius, which gets about 50 mpg on the freeway, is allowed to drive in the carpool lane by him or herself. A driver of a regular car, which gets, say, 25 mpg, has to have at least one other person in the car besides the driver to get in the high-occupancy vehicle lane. So, wouldn't it stand to reason that a person driving a vehicle that gets, say, 13 mpg have to have at least four people total to drive in the HOV lane?
