A Virginia legislator introduced a bill to recognize pregnant women as two and allow them to drive in HOV lanes.
The bill says the Department of Transportation must establish a process for pregnant women to prove they are pregnant and link that information to the E-ZPass.

If a pregnant woman is not driving on a toll lane, she must show proof of pregnancy when stopped by law enforcement.
Information collected by the Department of Transportation will be used only to enforce HOV lane requirements and will not be published, sold, or disclosed to parties outside the court.
This information will also be deleted one year after proof of pregnancy is submitted to the department.
If a pregnant woman notifies the Department that she is not pregnant, the Department shall delete all data related to such pregnancy within 24 hours.
