Virginia has lost its bid to exempt uniformed active-duty military members from high-occupancy vehicle lane restrictions in Hampton Roads.
The Federal Highway Administration rejected the state's request to allow military members traveling to and from a base or other facility to drive alone in HOV lanes.
The federal agency said specific criteria must be met before a vehicle transporting only a driver is allowed to travel in the HOV lanes.
Legislation passed earlier this year by the General Assembly had sought the exemption.
