I just saw this in The New Republic this month:

An interesting idea, and I love that motorcycles were included as an obvious congestion-reducing solution.

Let us specifically request legal lane splitting under 5 miles per hour to overtake already stopped vehicles first, while somewhat back by http://www.nhtsa.gov/people/injury/pedb ... cle51.html . Motorists do need time to adjust to being overtaken closely by motorcycles.

Without specifying which kind of lane splitting to legalize, we may get nothing, other than applying necessity defense per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necessity ... ew_York%29 and http://public.leginfo.state.ny.us .
