Child Safety Seat Requirements

children less than six years of age or weighing less than 60
pounds be properly restrained in a child passenger restraint
system and doubles fines for first-time child safety seat violations.
Diamond (HOV) Lanes
To use the carpool lane during commute hours, you must be traveling
in a carpool, vanpool, or public transit vehicle. Motorcycle
riders may also use carpool lanes. During non-commute hours,
the lanes revert to general traffic use. Each child counts as an occupant, but pets, infants still in the womb, inflatable dolls or ghosts do not (we've heard 'em all).
