Hi all, Quick question - I have heard this is a grey area. I have observed that most motorcyclists do not lane split in front of marked police cars. However there has been more than one occasion where I've seen people lane split in front of police vehicles and nothing happens. What are your expeiences with the authorities regarding lane splitting? Do the authorities turn a blind eye to this rule? I tried looking up on RTA website what the fine and demerit points for this offence is and couldn't find anything. I've heard people say its $20 a vehicle but that doesnt sound right. Last question - what is the ettiquette in lane splitting? What happens when you are in the middle of two lanes and see that you cannot move any more forward as the two cars are too close together? If you remain in the middle of both lanes until the green light, do other cars give way to you to merge in front of them? If you're in a situation where there is a gap too narrow to pass, what do you do? Generally when I am in my car (in traffic) and see bikes coming up behind, I try to make room for them to pass - partly for fear they'll take off my side mirror! Today I was sitting in traffic with my L plates and some fellow bikers came by and slowed down and revved their engines i think signalling me to follow them but I didn't as I wouldnt know what to do.
