Does a baby count for carpool?

Q: Does having a baby in the car count as another person in the carpool lane? -- Shaudae in Renton A: "Shaudae, a baby does count as a passenger in a carpool lane. So, every person inside your car  counts. The only time it doesn't count is if you're still pregnant, we don't count those. But, basically anyone we can see and count, they do qualify for carpool." -- Washington State Trooper Julie Judson
