Safety implications of lane splitting 2014-10-25

    A study released this week by the University of California at Berkeley reports that motorcycle lane splitting, the practice of riding in between marked lanes to filter through slow-moving or stopped traffic, is just as safe for riders as traveling in normal lanes. The study indicated that the danger level does increase for riders who are splitting at speeds of 10mph or faster than the surrounding traffic.

  1. Interesting about the less severe injuries for LSMs, and the higher likelihood to be wearing more protective gear.
