Police from Virginia and Maryland will focus on HOV violations on interstates 95, 395, 66 and the Dulles Toll Road as part of the fifth annual Capitol Region HOV Awareness Day, the Virginia State Police said in a release.

Police will use moving and stationary patrols during the morning and evening rush hours to catch HOV violators. They will adjust the patrols in an effort to avoid backups.

Last year’s enforcement resulted in 485 violations.
