    Be careful doing that. LEOs WILL get upset and cite you for that. NO driving/ rideing on the shoulders in California.

    I am aware of the California law against it, so that's why I did the lane splitting thing. I think in other states it doesn't get the dim view that California gives it, so it makes for a good compromise. In Mass they allow it during rush hour traffic, the breakdown lane becomes another full speed travel lane. Now if we could only get a convergence of the laws. High speed breakdown lane travel and lane splitting...... in a perfect world.

In Mass they allow it during rush hour traffic where explicitly marked on only a few specific roads , the breakdown lane becomes another full speed travel lane.

    FTFY, Don't want anyone crossing into Mass and thinking anything done on the roads is a good idea.

    People used to say "what's wrong with the traffic?"
    I would say-
    "A complete lack of interest on the part of the motoring public to get from point A to point B with any degree of regularity or efficiency".
