The fight against H.O.T. lanes and Peach Passes is stepping it up a notch.

A new coalition, called "Stolen Lanes," combines the work of three trumpeters against Georgia's decision to introduce toll lanes in the metro Area, including Gwinnett County.

Founders include: , of " Stop the Hot Lane;" Chris Haley of " Stop Peach Pass"; and , of " Against the Georgia Peach Pass."

"The number of people opposed to the recent implementation of the H.O.T. lanes keeps growing," said Ramkisson, of Snellville, in a statement on the "Stolen Lanes" website. "This is not a problem that will go away without acknowledgement of the issue and a plan to correct it by SRTA (Georgia State Road & Tollway Authority) and the Georgia Department of Transportation."

The coalition's new website is http://www.stolenlanes.org, and it is now available as a resource to those looking to join the trio against current H.O.T lanes (High Occupancy Toll lanes) on Interstate 85, as well as similar upcoming projects on other interstates.

The website will be updated regularly with new information, including activities the group is working on and opportunities for engagement. A town hall meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Nov. 17, at the in Lawrenceville.
