Utah’s lanesplitting bill we told you about earlier this week has been shot down in the state’s House of Representatives.
According to the Deseret News, Utah’s politicos voted 29-45 against HB410, which would have legalized lanesplitting in the state, somewhat along the same lines as was seen in California last summer, and appears to be shaping up in the state of Washington.
Utah’s politicians trotted out the same old tired warnings about dangerous highways in the process of nixing the bill. Hopefully, the state’s riders won’t take no for an answer, and keep pressing their leaders towards sensible motorcycling legislation. Then, we’d have another example to point to, when enough Canadians realize it’s time to introduce lanesplitting here.
