The Long Island Expressway (LIE as commonly referred) has High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes in both directions from, exit 32 to exit 64. The lane restrictions are in effect Monday through Friday 6:00 a.m. through 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. During these hours the HOV lanes are reserved for buses and passenger vehicles with two or more occupants. Trailers and commercial vehicles are not permitted in the HOV lanes at any time. Clean Pass Vehicles are permitted to use the HOV lanes with a single occupant through New York Clean Pass program. You can visit the following website to get more information or to see if your vehicle qualifies for the program

Moved from lane unsafely VTL 1128(a)
