There are only 400 CHP motors, so much less than 10%. All the people John has had to deal with are far above the 'road' level and set in their ways. Considering how difficult it is to get the state to do anything its a miracle what he's accomplished so far.

John, the next time I am out in Libmo and you are off duty, please allow me the privilege of buying you a beer.

Well done!

Hopefully once California has blessed lane sharing officially other states will follow suit.

Fantastic work, John. You have done, and continue to do, so much for the motorcycle community here in California. It's got to feel good when you see some of the results of all of those hours. Keep fighting the good fight, and THANK YOU for all that you do.

The credit goes to a lot of people. Budman is a member of the committee. We have folks from DMV, OTS, CHP, CALTRANS, MSF, NHTSA, EMS, and SNELL. All of them played a part in this. Some threw up roadblocks and a few of us helped steamroll over them. My contribution was keeping a blowtorch lit under everyone's butts, and not accepting no for an answer.

I hope, instruction on how to do the split, in the reading of drivers, and, speed changes to not be where one shouldn't be when a distracted driver makes the "take Ya out" move.. is done in all schooling sources (MSF being one)...So riders can learn how to do this better...

The better we do it, the better the stats that other states will be using to, make their decisions on.

It will sure work better, if all states have the same law..
