New guy in Arizona. My new 05 with option package 6 is due to arrive this week (good things to say about Avondale Toyota). Does anyone know if I can get the alt fuel plate and drive in the HOV lanes here in Phoenix? Any help would be appreciated.

:shock:

HOV Lane

AZMike,

Unless the laws have changed recently -- No. The Prius does not qualify in Arizona. Maybe if you could get it to run off of CNG or propane...

If you find out different, let us know. There are several of us in the Grand Canyon State that would be interested.

AZ HOV

They did pass a law allowing Hybrids to use the HOV lane upon definition by the EPA. So it is coming. :D

Arizona

As of Jul. 9, Arizona Revised Statutes from the 47th session Chapters 28-2416 and 28-737 allow hybrid vehicle owners with a $8.00 special plates/hybrid sticker that is displayed on said vehicle to use the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes regardless of the number of passengers. Arizona has not instituted this policy as it is awaiting clairification of the federal Hybrid HOV waiver from the Environmental Protection Agency.
