Lane splitting legalized in Montana

New law will be effective in October according to this article.

It blows me away that OR & WA can decriminalize schedule 1 drugs yet not allow lane splitting/lane sharing/lane filtering. SB574 is up for discussion in OR but dollars to donuts it gets voted down. Mark my words. We can allow people to kill themselves with drugs and screw up their minds, but we won't allow you to pass other cars.

Fuck me runnin'.

Well, there’s probably one stop light in Billings where it might be occasionally helpful to filter up to the intersection while waiting for it to change.

Well, three cheers for MT! Now with UT & CA also allowing lane sharing the encroachment on OR continues. A few years ago when we last toured MT, it would have been great to have lane sharing legal. Running into Bozeman from Yellowstone there was sure some traffic that deserved splitting!

Along with the schedule 1 drugs, to stand tall on repeated challenges to Death with Dignity..

Yet because ODOT & the Interstate Truckers Union opposed lane sharing last time, it didn't make it for a full vote, if I remember correctly. As if either of THOSE organizations actually have alternative solutions to ease congestion or reduce CO2 emissions.
