I drop off my kids at school on my way to work. Does that count as carpooling?
No, what you described does not involve two or more drivers who opt to ride together rather than each taking their own vehicle, thereby resulting in a reduction of vehicle miles traveled (and reducing vehicle emissions) by sharing a ride. If you are not riding with another potential driver who could be taking another vehicle rather than riding with you, then you are not actually carpooling.
