I don't live up in the Seattle area anymore, but the last time I went up there I got into (what I thought was the HOV lane) and got hit with a fine from the great state of WA for using a TOLL road even with 3 people in my car. This is just way for the state to generate revenue

On 405, I got ticketed in my car with a passenger (no transponder since I'm from out of state). Got the bill in the mail along with a dismissal form - filled out the form and mailed it back in, received a response about a week later saying the charges were dropped. Cost me a stamp, but it was a hell of a lot easier than dealing with their bullshit in person.

How do the tolls on HWY 167 work? I drove through them with a passenger last weekend, haven't seen anything in the mail about it yet.

You won't, 167 is a different system. 167 operates as a true HOV lane if you have 2 or more passengers or are on a bike. The only folks who pay are solo drivers who want to use the HOT lane to save time, and they need a pass to do so.

Of course the WSP has admitted that the 167 HOT lanes are basically unenforceable. No shoulders for most of it, far side of the road from the on ramps, etc.
