>> stanley:carpool lanes in northern california are slightly southern california the lanes there are 24 hours 7 days a week . but in the bay they are usually during rush hour however the express lanes on this corridor are in effect all day . so in order to use them you must possess a fastrak transponder there are two types, the old fashion ones and the ones that have switches >> stanley:if you are carpooling it's always free .you only have occupant now here is where it gets a little tricky. if you don't have a transponder you are basically a carpool cheat during the hours the lanes are in effect >> stanley:so how can the chp tell. well these lights up above see how the first light is on. this means the driver is the only one if the lights don't turn on it could mean that you do not have a transponder and i'll say it again the fasttrack transpoinder is required. not having or not displaying youor transponder cames with a 238 dollar ticket . and being a carpool cheat could net you an additional ticket in the range of 460 dollars but it doesn't come with a point so basically its like parking ticket on the highway >> stanley:also the express lanes don't mean you get to exceed the posted speed limit it simply means you get to pay not to be stuck in traffic in alameda county stanley roberts kron 4 news
