Lane Splitting Bill!

It has been introduced in the Senate, pretty much the same as last time I think. Limited to highways with a speed limit of 50+ and when traffic is doing 10-.

The House has a bill which would allow travel on the shoulder, not between lanes, but the speed limits are higher:

And have you bothered to actually make the case to your elected representatives?

This. Soooo much this.

They have another great quote, too. Something about "voting doesn't work", or some such nonsense.
If you can't be bothered to put in the effort to make something work and it doesn't work, the problem isn't with the process you didn't use...it's you. Send an email, make a phone call, visit in person...do something, or don't bitch.

And of all of the methods, the personal visit for an informed conversation is the most powerful. Just the fact that someone takes a day off from work, ie uses vacation or goes without a day's pay, speaks volumes.

Why is civility so rare nowadays? There's no reason to respond like this.

Let's keep this thread open so that more people can contribute and spread the word. If everyone sends a formal letter to their representstives, we'll have a good chance at this. More often than not, I get a response from them.

All right, let's try to keep things civil, discuss issues, and not resort to name calling.

After all, this is not Congress.
