Hey Jonathan,

I'm not a big fan of HOV lanes either. I actually think they are causing a huge problem at around Brant on the West bound side because all the HOV users are having to cross all the way over to the right to travel towards Hamilton when all the non users who want to travel towards Niagara have to cross all the way to the left.

I was just trying to say that stretch of road is an example where "induced demand" doesn't live up to it's claims. I could imagine someone saying that the reason there is less congestion is because of HOV so I was just acknowledging their potential argument.

PS. I upvoted you btw. Don't want you to think I was the person who down voted you. You don't deserve a down vote for your comment.
