We’ve been hearing from listeners that police are cracking down at the George Washington Bridge, where drivers and riders have been teaming up to take advantage of E-ZPass carpool discounts.
Some drivers are using the bus stop on the approach to the George Washington Bridge between Center and Lemoine Avenues in Fort Lee to pick up passengers, achieving carpool status and a big discount on the toll. These drivers can cut across lanes, block traffic, and hold up the buses at the stop to pick up passengers.
There are websites that help travel companions link up. They include erideshare.com and a service from the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
