Commuter Lanes and Two Freeways

February 16, 1986

For a number of weeks now, I have been reading The Times editorials on the "commuter lanes" installed on the Costa Mesa and 91 freeways. The Times has called them a "success."

Nothing could be further from the truth.

I myself cannot speak about the Costa Mesa Freeway, but I can of the 91 Freeway, where I am a consistent driver.

The accident rate has certainly increased on an already-beleaguered freeway.

Travel time on this freeway has increased for the single-passenger car.

The Times, in its Feb. 9 editorial, "Test Deserves More Time," only advocates having a bad scene shoved down our throats whether we like it or not.

Opponents are right. The additional lane should be open to all.
