A new Virginia bill would recognize a “fetus” as a carpool lane passenger

 A new #Virginia bill would recognize a fetus as vehicle passenger when determining occupancy in carpool lanes. If passed, pregnant women and their unborn baby would count as two passengers when driving on Virginia's expressways.

Virginia's HB 1894, sponsored by Republican Del. Nicholas Freitas, provides that a "pregnant woman shall be considered two people for the purposes of determining occupancy" when driving in high occupancy toll lanes throughout Virginia.

If passed, pregnant women would have to provide "proof of pregnancy" to certify their pregnant status with the Transportation Department. This data would then be logged into a toll collection device, such as an E-Z Pass.
