Turnpike to allow hybrid cars in car pool lanes starting Monday

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) _ Drivers of fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles will be allowed to use the high occupancy vehicle lanes of the New Jersey Turnpike starting Monday.

The move is meant to help offset rapidly rising gas prices and encourage consumers to be more fuel-efficient, state officials said. Hybrids run on a combination of gasoline and electricity from batteries and get more miles to the gallon than traditional vehicles.

Currently, cars using the HOV lanes must have at least three occupants. Motorcycles and buses are also allowed to drive there. The northbound car pool lanes are open weekdays from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. and the southbound lanes are open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
