Car pool lanes cover thousands of miles of roads across America and make commuting a relative breeze for many drivers every work day. In car pool lanes, only vehicles with multiple occupants are allowed. This allows people who are car pooling to have a lane to themselves, which usually moves at a high speed, even when the rest of the freeway is stuck in stop-and-go traffic.

The car pool rules vary depending on the state that you’re driving in and often even depending on the county and the freeway. Some of the rules that vary are the minimum number of occupants required, the hours in which the lanes are open, and where drivers can enter or exit the lanes.
