Default Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

Legal in Cali but no where else in the US. What do you think? Should the laws change to legalize it?

No. This is America, queue up like the rest. Special treatment for some, even when all benefit, is stoopid.

No because there are too many idiots in cars that will change lanes killing the bikers...and too many idiots on bikes (as I see lanesplitting all the time in VA)

Default Re: Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

If lane splitting was restricted to only a certain lane, maybe. As it appears to be in Cali where bikes seem to split through any lane? No. And speeds should be restricted.

If I can only do 25, don't come through at 45 only to honk and b1tch about me not paying attention when you just cut up three lanes of traffic and there is no way I could have seen you. Not that I have had this experience. But I can see it happening.

Default Re: Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

There wouldn't be an issue if they were lane splitting at 5-10 mph over the cars, but usually I see a biker going 45 mph when cars are stopped/crawling in traffic

Default Re: Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

In the DC DMV area, this would be great and dangerous. In California its well known. Some Riders do the lane splitting in the DC DMV area already...

I will not be parked in traffic on my motorcycle, period, however, I will not split lanes at FAST speeds.

Default Re: Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

Absolutely not. Most of the lane splitters I see have a death wish, flying by 40-50+ the rate of speed around them. Just like many people dislike bicyclists because a few of them refuse to follow the rules of the road, lane splitters make all bikers look like mouth breathers

Default Re: Should motorcycles be allowed to lanesplit?

AT the end of the day... I would only lane split if the traffic was dead still ... and no on-coming traffic or exiting traffic. Basically no other moving pieces..
