WASHINGTON (WNEW/AP) — Police in the Washington area are cracking down on cheaters in the high-occupancy vehicle lanes.

Six law enforcement agencies are participating in Thursday’s “Capitol Region HOV Awareness Day.”

It’s focused on Interstates 66, 95, 270, 395 and the Dulles Toll Road.

HOV lanes are reserved during rush hours for vehicles carrying two or more people. They are meant to encourage ride-sharing to reduce traffic congestion and fuel consumption.
