METRO is cracking down on drivers who are illegally using the diamond lanes. Those are the extreme right lanes in downtown meant only for busses and drivers who are turning right.

METRO is hoping to reduce the number of bus accidents. Last year, there were 782.

The fine for breaking the diamond lane laws range from $170 to $270.
