I agree with the use of high occupancy vehicle lanes on the Long Island Expressway. However, my issue is with restrictions about getting in and out of the lanes [“HOV drivers too often cross the safety line,” Editorial, July 25].

I live in Florida for six months each year. There, drivers can enter the HOV lanes anywhere on Interstate 95. If Florida doesn’t have restrictions, why can’t drivers do the same in New York?

I hope state transportation officials consider my suggestion. It would make driving more of a pleasure rather than a chore.
