POLL: Will you use the new 495 Express Lanes?

The Capital Beltway’s new high-occupancy toll lanes are open for business in Virginia. But these lanes haven’t arrived without headaches: After six accidents in the first 72 hours, authorities are rushing to make changes and better alert drivers that they’re approaching the express lanes.

Are you going to use these new lanes? If so, how often? Let us know in this poll. And share any other thoughts on the lanes in the comments below.
