Interstate Carpool Lane Given the Okay

December 29, 2006

Independent sources are reporting that the Federal Government has gone ahead with funding for carpool lanes for all 20,000 miles of U.S. Interstate Highways. Incredible as it sounds, after studying the traffic issues during the holiday weekend, the approval for addition funds was okayed in a special session of congress.
Walt Papkiss at the Interstate Highway Planning Board was quoted as saying, “Well, we basically forgot to plan.” “We were all coming to work as usual, but we were mostly just standing around,” Papkiss added. “I knew there was something we were supposed to be doing, but we just couldn’t remember what it was.”
The holiday weekend saw thirty-mile traffic jams, excess wait times and was described by law enforcment as “dismal,” and “grim.”
So, beginning in early January, crews will begin work on this monumental project. Funding will come from the petroleum industry, tax increases and the sale of cookies.
