    New law on Lane Sharing / Splitting .. how do you read this?

    How do you all interpret some of this with regards to splitting in the fast lane only, or splitting on a single lane (or single lane exit)?

    There must be at least two lanes going in the direction you are going. You may split between those lanes. Between #1 and #2 lane is the recommended spot and may become the only legal one once the CHP weigh in again, as this is the only spot that cars are expecting it and there is more room for the cars to leave space as the #1 lane can hedge towards the center divider.

    You may not go to the left of the left most lane of traffic in the direction you are traveling (unless it is a legal pass in the oncoming lane or to the right of the right most lane of traffic in the direction you are traveling (illegal pass on the shoulder). Same as it's always been.
