I'm a rider. I use lane filtering some times if I'm in a hurry but always when it's safe to do so. ACT Gov is trialing motorcycle lane filtering for two years before legalising it. My understanding is it's about riding safely and reduce congestion. I see riders lane splitting at high speed at ROUNDABOUTS! It infuriates me as a rider because it's not only unsafe, it create disgust from drivers towards ALL riders when we are doing the right lane filtering at lights and heavy traffic congestion. I feel this a selfish act. The trial will involve evaluating number of accidents. They are just making it easy for the government to demolish the law before it's even legalized. I drove today due to heavy rain in Canberra. I stopped at the roundabouts on William Hovell and I was on right hand lane. I do what all drivers do, look to the right to ensure no oncoming traffic before entering the roundabout. When it was cleared, I entered the roundabout and immediately found this jerk on his fancy white sports bike, split lane, fighting to stand up straight in the rain and I almost knock him off. I had to step on the brake hard in this wet condition and nearly lost control. M*******ker! I honked at him and he had the nerve to gave me the finger and taunting me with his disgust. If it wasn't wet I would have followed him and had a word with him. This arrogant jerk thinks I'm just a silly girl who had no idea that motorcycles are allowed to 'split lane'. Mate, you misunderstood the whole trial. It's meant for lane filtering when it is safe. I'm certain what he did isn't lane filtering at a roundabout, it is illegal to split lane. These are two different matters. Correct me if I'm wrong. I want to post it here, reminding riders from Canberra, it is only a trial. If they don't like the result, we don't get that privilege anymore. Why couldn't everybody just do the right thing and stay safe!
