Exclamation Lane spitting legislation

Representative MacEwen has introduce some lane splitting legislation.

House Bill HB1106 would allow lane splitting if the rider is going no more than 10 mph more than the traffic and is riding at less than 35 mph.

If would also make it a traffic infraction for the operator of another vehicle to interfere with the rider splitting lanes.

If you like this bill, let both of your House of Representatives member know.

Looks like Judy Clibborn is gone! Looks like Steve Hobbs is the new chair....
Don't know anything about him, but having Clibborn out, we might actually have a chance.....!

I sent a comment to my Representatives via the legislature’s website even though doing so is reminiscent of Groundhog Day. It’s hard to be optimistic about this going anywhere. Guess you never know, however...perhaps this is the year.

The hardest thing about moving back to Washington after spending 5 years in CA was accepting the fact that I am once again "traffic". I really don't hit much traffic on the east side but it really drives me up the wall at stop lights. Filtering to the front of the line and being able to accelerate from every light at motorcycle speeds is such a great feeling, and it puts one less vehicle in traffic!

yeah, but it's totally unfair to all the car people waiting in that long line. if they can't go to the front then you can't either. and besides, you are dangerous and noisy and fuck you any way for just being out there trying to have some fun doing something you are good at.

Was at the end of a long tailback on a single lane feeder somewhere in Washington Co (OR), and since i was going to turn right and knew from experience that the hangup was 300 pasty people each alone in his/her SUV, wanting to turn left to get to the Freeway, I went ahead and scooted down on the margin, knowing I'd be gone without having in any practical sense interfered with anyone.

But of course, one of them reacts to me easing up in his right hand mirror by WHALING maniacally on his horn, and starts frantically J-turning in his cramped little space to try to rotate his car to the curb to block me. Only succeeds in wedging himself between bumpers and failing. (Besides, I can curb-hop on my chicken strips at will, so it wouldn't have stopped me anyway.) I gave him and his dark purple, sweaty, frustrated, screaming, kids hate him and his wife is divorcing him failure-in-every-aspect-of-his-life face a very sweet smile as I floated on by.
