Motorcycles beat congestion as HOV is introduced

The Government has announced proposals to introduce High Occupancy Vehicle lanes (HOV) on the M1.

The M1 is the first motorway that will have a lane dedicated to car drivers carrying passengers. Motorcyclists, however, will be allowed to use these lanes with or without a pillion passenger.

The Government has announced this scheme, which is an attempt to reduce the congestion that is clogging up British roads.

Lone drivers will not be allowed to use the HOV lanes, which will stretch between junctions seven and ten on the motorway, during rush hour.

The Motor Cycle Industry Association (MCIA) is delighted that the Government have recognised the importance of motorbikes and scooters as a form of everyday transport.
