Express lane scofflaws

Recently, as I traveled north on Interstate 95, the overhead signs indicated that three left lanes of the interstate were blocked. I decided it would be best to take the express lanes. However, they were marked “Closed.”

As I sat in the miles-long traffic jam for almost half an hour, I was amazed and resentful that hundreds of cars sped their way through the express lanes while I, obeying the sign, stood still in the traffic jam.

If tickets can be issued to cars that travel the express lanes with no SunPass or one that has expired, why can’t tickets be issued to every car in the express lanes when the sign indicates that it is closed?
