  1. On page 10 of the VicRider Handbook, it says lane splitting is illegal; however I have seen many and everyone does that on the freeway to Westgate bridge; especially when traffic is not moving or slowing down (less than 40km/hr).




    Should I be doing lane splitting? Or ride in the emergency lane, which looks safer, no1 is actually using it.

    Total experience of 5 hours on a bike, never been above 20km/h and you're asking about whether you should be splitting? :?

    The answer is NO. Do not split. Do not ride in the e-lane. Infact, do not even go anywhere near a highway or freeway.

    Actually, do not even get anywhere near even quiet suburban street that has any level of traffic until you can at least take off without stalling and you've got the most basic of basic bike competencies sorted.
