Diamonds May Not Be a Prius' Best Friend

Those solo hybrid drivers whizzing by the rest of on the southbound 405 in the carpool lanes may not be laughing much longer. As it turns out, the DMV's hybrid sticker program is wildly popular (are we really that surprised?) and may soon await its fate. Evidently, the DMV is issuing those yellow stickers faster than anything has ever happened at the DMV. Ever. The program may soon be re-evaluated and will be dumped if too many non-carpoolers turn the diamond lanes into white knuckle lanes. Maybe it's back to those trusty 8 mpg SUVs for everyone.
