And, $400 is the MINIMUM FINE!
$400 is the fine for an HOV lane violation in Arizona, so if you find yourself flying along solo in the HOV, you might want to move on over. The good news is that ADOT will be adding 250 new signs over the next year along our Valley freeways as reminders – just in case you forget.
