Lawmakers want carpool lane cheaters to pay a higher penalty

OLYMPIA Drivers who repeatedly sneak into carpool lanes without a carpool may face much heftier fines if caught.
A ticket, which now carries a $136 penalty, would cost $242 under a bill making its way through the state Senate.

If you get nicked a second time, you would pay $499. Get a third and it could cost $755.

And the bill may get tweaked to have an extra amount tacked on for those who put a dummy in the passenger seat in hopes of evading capture.

Sen. Marko Liias, D-Lynnwood, wrote Senate Bill 5695 to tackle a worsening problem that contributes to slower travel times in lanes reserved for buses and vehicles with multiple occupants.

He got really fired up when he learned violators on I-405 toll lanes can be a factor in pushing tolls higher in the commute.

1. Another reason to leave MAGAt behind

As if another reason is necessary.
