Utah is the third state that now allows some sort of filtering between cars.
Thanks to increasing traffic congestion and safety concerns, filtering and lanesplitting make sense.
US lawmakers wont allow motorcycles to ride between cars, but they will allow them to ride on the shoulder to avoid traffic jams.
Move comes as city council examines “comprehensive motorcycle policy changes,” including approval of bikes in limited-use lanes, and more motorcycle parking.
The rules against lanesplitting and filtering are stupid. They’re slowing traffic and putting riders in danger. It’s time to make change happen.
The state’s politicians already looked at the idea in 2010; the law didn’t pass then, and it’s not likely to pass now. Still, this is encouraging news.
All right, Canada: What’s your excuse for not mobilizing on this issue?
