Lane splitting under 5 miles per hour deserves to be legal as http://www.csgnetwork.com/stopdistcalc.html shows the stopping distance to be ultra-short. This is how I am trying to convince my State Assemblyman Joseph Saladino. You should also try to convince your State Legislators why lane splitting under 5 miles per hour deserves to be legal, please.

Nervous and scared. The last thing I want on the roads is nervous and scared automobile drivers. She and I'm sure a million more drivers out there are startled and unsettled by lane splitting motorcyclists. That danger may just offset any safety gained by splitting. Do I have facts and figures, charts and studies and wonkidelia to substantiate this? No. Dang!
"What an ASSHOLE!"
