I witnessed a beautiful sight last Thursday for those haters of carpool lane cheats. While crawling along on Highway 101 at San Tomas Expressway, I noticed six CHP motorcycle cops merging onto 101.

They eventually made it onto 101 and moved quickly over to split lanes in bumper-to-bumper traffic. They gathered single file and proceeded north looking into each car in the carpool lane on their left as they passed by. It looked like it was going to be a fun assignment.
I have never seen them patrol like this. Is this a new thing? It made me smile.
