    Given how much we pay in taxes on these cars (property + EV Tax), shouldn't Virginia incentivize purchasing these cars by giving us HOV access?
    I understand not wanting to clog the roads with hybrids, but EV's are still very rare.

    Fairfax is not EV friendly.

    And soon there wont be any HOVs left. 495 is HOT lanes, 395 is HOT lanes, 66 is heading in the HOT lane direction. What's left? Toll road (can you use it with clean fuel plates in HOV)?

    Be careful what you wish for - you might gain access but force you to put big ugly stickers all over your car. Yuck!
