lane splitting, like most any other time you're on the road is as safe as YOU make it. I'd do it, if lane splitting were legal here in Missouri. From what I understand from many Californians is that its quite safe, and actually safer than sitting in the back of the stopped traffic where you stand the chance of getting rear-ended. Also the CHP suggests that it only be done at speeds up to 30 or something like that, and bikes should only go like 10mph over what traffic is due to cars making lane changes. and Most guys that do it in CA say cars actually make a conscious effort to make room for bikes to pass by. Which might be a problem for a few years if implemented in other sates. I often get lane splitting chances and just dont do it because the legality. it would save me 10-15min if not more at times, not to mention slightly lessen traffic because the bikes are moving out of the way/ jam. eveybody wins IMO.Looks and sounds dangerous to me, unless you are extremely careful and lucky
No. Lane splitting and filtering are illegal in Texas.I saw that video earlier today. I don't think lane splitting is legal in Texas, not sure. But I'm patient in traffic. I've got enough problems dealing with other drivers without making it much worse with lane splitting.
Lane splitting is where the car and the bike occupying the same lane traveling side by side, those two werent in any lane. At least thats how i understand it and how its been every time ive seen an example of 'proper' lane splitting.That's not lane splitting?
