The bill hasn't been enacted yet.

Lets get this over to the East coast now. We know it will. Its just like the helmet laws. One state did it and them many more followed. Its just a matter of time is all.

I wish it was legal here... like I said before... it is only legal to split like 5 or 10mph over traffic... but at least then doin 120 would only be a speed ticket instead of both!!

Never ride a motorcycle on sidewalks, more than two side-by-side on a public road, between lanes of traffic, between traffic and the curb, or on a bicycle path

Michigan law above. Mud...you're fine, doesn't say anything about medians!!!!!

Hope it passes Seattle traffic is the worst Everytime I drive bike to vacation home on San Juan island WA, get stuck in Seattle traffic no matter what day or time.
Now if Portland OR would ok lane splitting would have no traffic on my trips

It will take several years for it to effect all states and knowing NC (still no lotto). They will over look it and never put it through.

Jeeps, NV has no lottoe either.. many states dont.... its looked on as a regressive tax... poor ppl buy tickets.. rich dont. Odds of payout are back, hence regressive tax... poor spend all the money on it and become poorer.

NO PORN!!!!!!!!??????? MOVE MAN...j/k

I buy tickets every once in a blue moon, but not too often, maybe a few a year. Hell NV has legal hookers anywhere outside of Washoe County, only place they are illegal, so no porn would just be dumb. I didnt know anywhere had porn completly illegal..."u can have all the sex u want, but u cant make a video or take pictures, or look at pictures of anyone u dont know" How much sense does that make.... they should make sex illegal there too then. Let em all die out so they cna change the law.
