It's great to see that they are THINKING about saving cars on the road and fuel Bla Bla Bla. Who is going to monitor this and are they checking to see that who is driving has their year of experience completed? You know everyone follows that rule!! We have had to be very tuff with our kids about this and we hold true to the law on this. It is very important to get them to develop good driving habits with out the influence from other kids in the car. I would bet that this will not be adhered too or checked as part of this feel good, do good for our air pollution. If everyone cares so much about the air pollution the should make the kids ride the bus. Now that's a car pool worth supporting.

Wow, they indoctrinate the kids early nowadays, don't they. What's the "fine" for parking there if you're not carpooling? I agree with the post above...'feel good, do good'...But let's call it what it really is; Social Engineering. What's next, super premium parking for electric vehicles with 'free' plug-in recharging?

The bus is great...drops my son right in front of the school and allows us to avoid the traffic congestion every morning and afternoon on Foothill Rd. He gets home before most people in their Pruises......
