    Georgia Lane Splitting

    New to GA, I've been told we can't split lanes here. Does anyone do it and if so, how to the police feel about it?

    Do not try it. How the police feel about it will be the least of your problems. The way the Atlanta rush hour commuters feel about it would be the problem.

    Yeah, Georgia traffic is tough....Reports suggest skip it all together
    As you get more used to it, while you are parked on 85/75, you might see the "badges" or "notches" of what the vehicle next to you has run over

    It might be better in this-



    until you get used to the "flow".

    Good luck.

    There was a legislative effort to institute lane splitting in Montana a few years ago (Yes, I know, why in Montana?). The bill got far more traction than one would expect, but thankfully failed. Simply not needed here and the learning curve would be quite steep; a great deal of pain for not much gain.

    And, please lighten up on the cavemen/women insults. Some of my best friends are cavemen.

    I hope the OP's lack of response isn't an indication that the lane splitting did not go well.

    The lane splitting part is going fine, I just don't do it. Big part of the reason is because they have, literally, the WORST drivers I've ever seen here in Atlanta, and I've been throughout much of this country. They're dumb and dangerous. Best just to stay as far away as possible, I've reached the conclusion.

    Just brief snow this year, but last winter I was in Chicago with 10 feet of snow, when Atlanta got 2 inches and it shut the city down.

    A few days ago you sat in 98 degree heat; we hurried home to beat snow and 18 degree temperatures. No baseball bats in either case. Bats are evidently an urban affectation. Sunny and 60 here today.
