Why is ANYTHING out of this woman's mouth important. I guess the "local" developers gave her permission to open her YAP about something that is completely useless in Kelowna...………..like her!

She’s the poster child for the old adage: “Better to Be Thought of a Fool - Than Open One’s Mouth and Remove All Doubt”. High Occupant Vehicle is not restricted to transit buses Gail - it’s any vehicle with two or more occupants, including your much-hated private vehicles. What a buffoon.

Comments coming out of the "sympathy vote"(s) YAP are turning her into the council "bully". I guess she is going to follow in her late husbands footsteps. When "smarts" is not a strong point or in this case, completely lacking, you need something else to fall back on.

Last time I checked provincial highways are public highways, I only use hov lane when turning right.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

They are not "transit bus only" they are HOV (high occupancy vehicle) or vehicles with more than one persons to discourage single occupant vehicles, particularly on commutes. It is my suggestion that she research what they are for before making up her own rules about them. Personally I use them when I have to make a right turn. Heavy traffic I will move over withing a couple blocks when there is a safe spot to do so. Lighter traffic I wait until probably half a block. Not going to risk an accident squeezing in last minute. :130:

I just read the article.
I cant believe it. I actually had to read it twice because the idiocy was so great i thought i misread the first time.

Why do we let people like this run our governments?

Given is just another example of the marginally employable being offered a good chance for a hand up in life.
At least shes likely not living in a tax funded wet facility in a seniors neighborhood.

From the article :

"B.C. Ministry of Transportation officials have appeared at council with statistics showing private vehicles in HOV lanes do, in fact, travel the corridor more swiftly than cars and trucks in the other lanes."

That's debatable.
Its easy enough to provide the same proof about any other lanes too.

Theres waay too much bs going on out there.
Its too the point you cant beleive anyone.

The whole human race is fried on drugs.
What difference does it make if there's idiots running things.
Would be interesting to graph the lunacy and time and see where the lines intersect.

The article is poorly written because I think it makes people believe the transit drivers that can actually control the lights & I don't feel that's true at all ?
Isn't it the transponder sending a signal to light control panel & if possible it can hold the light on to allow the bus to go thru ?
I'm guilty of being in the HOV lane sooner than I need to because I've been caught in the centre & I just don't
just RAM MY WAY in front of someone at the last minute as some suggest.

My bet is that Given is giving this soap box rant because of all the money that's been spent / (wasted) on this HOV lane idea & it's not working as planned & now another $181,000 going into this bottomless pit for an idea that IMO will never work & now she's PO.
