It appears that Tim Eyman has gotten his latest initiative on the ballot. Eyman yesterday turned in the latest batch of what he says are 299,019 signatures. Election officials must now check to be sure there are at least 224,880 valid signatures.
Eyman’s Initiative 985 would:
• open freeway carpool lanes to everyone during off-peak hours;
• require cities and counties to synchronize traffic lights on busy roads;
• boost roadside help so accidents are cleared faster;
• and require that any tolls are used only on the same project.
