Lane-Splitting Is An Acquired Skill
February 14, 2013 by mac
Some automobile drivers see motorcyclists as obnoxious and borderline cheaters as they cut and weave through slow freeway traffic to get ahead of others.
The practice is called lane-splitting
and only in California has it always been legal, however, state authorities have never told motorcyclists how best to maneuver between heavy and slow moving traffic safely.
Until now… you can read the complete lane-splitting regulations HERE. The new rules, which the CHP introduced in January after consulting with other state agencies and motorcycle-rider groups, apply to city streets, highways and freeways across the state.
I wonder if we’ll be seeing intermediate and advance lane-splitting courses in the future?
I’ve blogged previously about the possibility of lane splitting in Oregon HERE.
