Bill to Legalize Lane Splitting / Sharing in Nevada

This isn't specifically Bay Area or California related, but since this is "Streetrider's Rights" I hope I won't get into too much trouble. If you have rider friends in NV, pass this along so they can get involved and help push it through. It'll be great for us CA riders when we head thataway.

Assemblymen Richard “Skip” Daly (District 31), Richard Carrillo (District 18) and James Healey (District 35) have introduced AB236 which would legalize lane splitting in Nevada. The bill language is interesting because it's simple and smart - State Senator Beale and the folks working on SB 350 here in California would do well to take a peek and consider similarly elegant language:

A person may drive a motorcycle or moped between moving or stationary vehicles occupying adjacent traffic lanes and traveling in the same direction as the motorcycle or moped provided that the person drives in a cautious and prudent manner and the motorcycle or moped does not exceed a speed of 30 miles per hour while driving between such vehicles.
Bill page is here. I'll post updates as I have them under the Nevada lane splitting news tag of too.
