California State Assembly Approves Lane-Splitting Legislation Allowing Motorcyclists To Move Through Stalled Traffic

Thursday, May 28, 2015

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — California may become the first state to explicitly allow motorcycles to weave between stalled cars in traffic.

The Assembly on Thursday approved legislation permitting lane-splitting.

Bikers who navigate congested roads by driving through the middle of lanes are in a legal gray area in California, though law enforcement has permitted the practice. Other states explicitly ban lane-splitting.
