State officials say the express lanes make commuting more predictable for those who use them. They say other motorists also benefit – as more people take the express lanes, it frees up space in the regular lanes.
That’s the theory. But we want your thoughts on how the express lanes work in practice. Do you use the existing express lanes on I-85 or I-75? Why or why not? Have they helped or hindered your commute? Are you able to cruise along at 45 m.p.h. in those lanes, as promised?
