I have no insight into the case law... would just comment that an assertion like that is pretty worthless without the specific citation for it. Ask the adjuster to show you the authoritative source, whatever that may be. I would be interested myself.

I also have wondered about the single lane share deal at least when the is a double yellow. Specifically when a car moves a bit to the right to allow you room to go by.



Never even thought about a car sharing past.. ever!!

I'm pretty sure it's legal to pass within the one available lane if there's room and it's otherwise legal (e.g. not speeding or reckless). It's the lack of any law against sharing a lane that gives us the right to lane split, no?

And yeah, given enough room I guess a car could split too.

Thank you for the update Bud! And thank you for representing us as a community.

As you said, one of the frustrating parts is that they are not looking at higher speeds "...because we don’t crash enough at higher speeds to have a source of data." I really hope they take that into consideration.

It was evident Quirk will not.

My hope was to convince Dr. Rice I was correct and that did not happen. I even hit him up after with statistical analysis questions after and he has not responded.

The bill is on the agenda for tomorrows meeting and I will corner him in our committee. . I know he will be meeting with the CHP and Quirk so man.... I need so mojo to gather an influence I don't have right now.

Hey Dennis,

I found this through Facebook off a video that ThumperX had shared. You probably already have this, but just double-checking. Pretty comprehensive study done in the EU.

And this is why we need to go all NRA on lane splitting laws and block any legislation. Legislation will NOT end well for us.

Exclamation Template Letter Opposing AB 51

Here is some language that can be used to draft a letter to your representative, reqesting them to oppose AB 51.

Quote:
Dear Assemblyman ______________,

As a motorcyclist I urge you to oppose AB 51, an act to amend Section 21658 of the Vehicle Code as it is currently written for motorcycle lane sharing. AB 51 includes a 30MPH speed limit when sharing lanes. This speed limit effectively restricts a motorcycle riders ability to react to other vehicles moving near and around them on a crowded highway. To obey AB 51 as written could potentially force a motorcycle rider to maintain an unsafe position next to, behind or in front of an inattentive or erratic vehicle operator.

If there is to be a new law, it needs to be done right. The data needed to codify lane splitting properly is not currently in the hands of our Legislators. Once the final data is in from the Study by Dr. Rice of Berkeley, a member of the California Motorcycle safety committee, I believe there will reasonable data to establish a law for the practice. Getting this right is of utmost importance to the motorcycle community and until the final study is in I urge you to vote no on AB 51.
Contact your CA using this map, or by your address.
