Watch the HOV time-lapse video someone just created

The HOV lanes have been a major source of contention during the Pan Am Games. Not so for one Torontonian who filled his car with passengers and sped by 800 vehicles on his way to work.

According to a report by CTV News, Toronto's Eddie Ho filmed his 30 km daily commute from Toronto to Oakville.

In a time-lapse video set to Georges Bizet's Les Toreadors from Carmen Suite No. 1, Ho passes by rows of traffic as he travels outside of the city on the Gardiner and QEW. At the end of the short YouTube clip Ho writes, "it's worse going the other way (eastbound)."

To drive in the HOV lanes, you must have three or more people in your vehicle. After July 27, and until August 18, you'll need only two.

Will you start carpooling to use the HOV lanes? Let us know in the comments.
