I believe they can however

1. I have dark tint so they could not determin who would be riding in the rear and
2. It's not all that often I see cops in the first place during the rare times that I actually drive this route.

I have heard from friends that morning rush hour traffic has a bunch of Chip's lined up in the carpool (protecting and serving no doubt) as cars come by in the HOV lane "reading" them for transponders. Or so I've heard. Excellent way to spend our tax dollars and an excellent use of their time.
