Privacy jam on California highway

Friday, 14 May 2004, 8:24 AM EST

These are the kinds of photos that until a few weeks ago made up the front page of a Web site called CarpoolCheats.org, where a pair of frustrated San Jose, Calif., commuters posted photos of single drivers who they spotted using the carpool lanes.

As highway vigilantism goes, it was mild. There were no legal repercussions for the drivers caught on film, and the state highway patrol, while aware of the site, can't use the information. But it drew enough rancor that creator Sean Mcintyre has temporarily closed the site down.

"CarpoolCheats.org website is temporarily out of service," the site's front door now tells visitors. "This is due to several threatening communications from an individual or individuals presently (but not for long) unknown to us."
