Many pregnant women have been in a debate recently over H.O.V. lanes. They think because they are pregnant, they have the right to use the H.O.V. lane when it is just them in the car. Do you think pregnant women should be allowed to use the H.O.V. lane if it’s just them behind the wheel? They are technically carrying two people in their vehicle, right?
Do you think the law should be changed?
Slacker is really confused because, “You start getting into the argument where it’s two or more persons, she gets pulled over, she points at her belly, and the cop goes, Ah!” Say if a woman was driving to the hospital to have a scheduled c-section, so the baby will be alive and breathing soon, how many people are in the car? It’s the same two people; they just got separated from each other.

I keep going back and forth on this topic, but currently I’m leaning towards allowing pregnant women to use the H.O.V. lane. I do believe there are two people in the car whether there’s two clicks of a seat belt or not. The mom’s belly is its seatbelt.
What do you think?
