Carpool Lane Eligibility for the Honda Clarity
California is a state that tries to promote clean driving. One way to promote this type of driving is through incentives. There are clean vehicle programs that offer benefits that can help you save on leasing or financing an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
However, the Honda Clarity is eligible for HOV lane access by applying for the High Occupancy Vehicle sticker.2 You can use the carpool lane to get to your destination quicker. You don’t even have to have any other passengers, and can use this lane by yourself!
