HOT lanes myth and reality
But do the editorial writers and reporters covering this issue really know what they're praising or condemning? Do you? Take this little true-false test:
1. True or false: Arlington's lawsuit asked VDOT to cancel the I-395 segment of the project.
2. True or false: Arlington dropped the lawsuit because the 395 segment was deleted.
3. True or false: The HOT lanes will speed up travel in the 95/395 corridor.
4. True or false: VDOT didn't move ahead with the lanes because the lawsuit was blocking their ability to proceed.
5. True or false: Fairfax and Prince William Counties want the project to move forward.
6. True or false: Arlington didn't "press for solutions" and just jumped to sue to block the project, as the Washington Post charged in an editorial Friday.
7. True or false: The lawsuit claims some people are racists for pushing the project.
Answers: They're all false.
