Pregnant Dallas woman gets ticket for using HOV lane. Says her unborn child should count.

Not the Bee



quote:

A pregnant Texas woman used the reversal of Roe v Wade to argue she should be allowed to drive in a car-pool lane, since the baby she was carrying “is a life.” By law, in order to use the high-occupancy vehicle lanes, drivers must have at least one passenger.


quote:

“I pointed to my stomach and said, ‘My baby girl is right here. She is a person.’ He said, ‘Oh, no. It’s got to be two people outside of the body,’” she told the newspaper. Though Texas penal code recognizes an unborn child as a person, the transportation code doesn’t.


quote:

Bottone isn’t letting up anytime soon, though—she’s fighting the ticket in court on July 20. “This has my blood boiling,” she said. “How could this be fair? According to the new law, this is a life. I know this may fall on deaf ears, but as a woman, this was shocking.”

She's either virtue signaling or a complete dumbass, or both, not knowing the purpose of an HOV lane is to promote carpooling.

I would support a law to allow pregnant women to use the HOV. It’s a nice gesture and makes the roads safer by getting more women off the main streets

It a privilege they deserve tbh.

In Tennessee a hearse was using the HOV lane but got a ticket because there was only one living person in the vehicle. Makes no sense to me.

They're occupying the same seat.

I would accept the argument and then close the loophole.

Then change the law to require two licensed drivers in the car

Not at all. It’s a loophole that she found and should be allowed to exploit until the loophole is closed.

They might reverse the ticket then issue one for not having the baby secured in a carseat in the back of the car.

I mean, I like her thinking. Letting pregnant women use the HOV lane is a small price to pay

I’m fine with her using the HOV lane. That’s her and her baby
