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