The I-405 express toll lanes were given the nickname of the “Lexus lanes” shortly after they opened. The sentiment was that only more affluent drivers with luxury cars could afford to use them and get a quicker drive.
It turns out, calling the express toll lanes the “Lexus lanes,” is not quite accurate.
A total of 21 percent of the cars in I-405's express toll lanes were Fords; 20 percent were Chevys. Nissans make up for about 9 percent of toll traffic. And Toyota is at about 8 percent. The list dwindles after that.
