LA's High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes are a bust, according to Detroit News columnist John McCormick.  While his conclusion is based on a single trip from Irvine to LAX— rather than any sort of statistical data— it's certainly true that car sharing isn't the panacea its planners predicted. McCormick wonders if drivers' reluctance to buddy-up reflects their "yearning for independence", then asserts that it's simply a matter of convenience, or lack thereof. For the true causation, we refer Mr. McCormick to a philosophical roadblock postulated by JP Sartre: Hell is other people. Once you've shared a car with a work colleague five times, you're done.
