Carpool lanes in San Diego and other parts of California will soon be off limits to solo drivers of hybrid vehicles.
Even those with the yellow clean air stickers will not enjoy the advantage starting June 1.
To notify car owners with these stickers, the DMV will mail out over 85,000 letters in May.
The next set of clean air stickers is anticipated to be released 2012.
The change will help solo drivers in as many as 40,000 advanced technology vehicles to use carpool lanes.
