Lane splitting to became officially legal in Ca soon?

California Assembly Unanimously Passes Bill To Regulate Lanesplitting
Interesting legislating toward making lane splitting legal in Ca. I hope that if this goes through that OR & WA will soon follow.

RCW 46.61.608

"The operator of a motorcycle shall not overtake and pass in the same lane occupied by the vehicle being overtaken"

You are in one lane or the other. "White-lining" doesn't mean you aren't in a lane.

California has no such law on the books, hence the gray area.

Got a ticket for splitting lanes in ca 10 yrs ago, wrote up for passing on the right. Cop said I was going too fast, if u look safe, they ignore it. Yup, gray area. I plead not guilty, cop didn't show, thrown out. This is what usually happens unless you get a reck less for going waaaaaay too fast. Then it's big trouble. Grey area? ????
