I agree with the emissions comment above 100%, although the argument is that people will ditch the truck to buy a green vehicle to get home quicker. A focus electric lease is cheaper than my fuel bill. The problem for me is that it would result in tows ith dead batteries.

Let's say I know someone who uses the hov occasionally and has passed coppers without issue. It is still illegal though as mentioned above. This person will sometimes wait in the hammer lane for another bike who is using and ride up with them. While this is still illegal I feel like two people on four wheels is a fair compromise.

Hopefully Ford's new guys can change this. I get the feeling he and his brother might know some bikers.
