There is so much to be said on the topic of Lane Sharing (or Lane Splitting or Filtering) that it’s hard to know where to start. The fact that most of the world allows it and the USA doesn’t is just another example of how differently motorcycles are perceived here vs. most of the rest of the world. Toys and not real and legitimate modes of transport.
This is something that I would like to change and given how bad traffic congestion is in our major cities it needs to change. I do think this Petition is a good step. It’s working to make Lane Sharing legal in all Fifty States. Check it out, and sign it, if you’re on the fence maybe you should look at this latest study from UC Berkeley.
