On Tuesday, local police departments joined forces to perform a high visibility detail in the carpool (HOV) lane on westbound SR-4 during the morning commute hours.

The California Highway Patrol worked with the Antioch and Pittsburg Police Departments between 7:00 am to 9:00 am and again at 10:00 am and 1:00 pm.

After the freeway enforcement, the focus of the day’s efforts were then speed violations in both Antioch and Pittsburg. By the end of this enforcement effort, officers had written 64 citations for the carpool lane violators, and 51 for other traffic violations.


  1. Thank you so much for cracking down on all the single person cars driving illegally in that lane. My co-worker and I commute in that lane everyday and it is frustrating to see all the law breakers driving (at least 60%) in the carpool lane, clogging up the traffic flow. Keep surprising them! Thanks.

  2. The ticket I received on Lone Tree is CRAP. There is no way with amount of cars on the road that radar said I was going 52. Makes me really wonder about all the tickets given out that day.

  3. @gerri….ask officer to produce radar certificate and his/her certification in court. They often are way behind in radar calibration and officer certs…ticket will be dismissed in court. I worked for organization who does Certs and they were two years behind…. my ticket on hiway 160 dismissed for same no cert condition…can’t hurt to check…
