  1. Is it legal to ride in between 2 lanes during stationary traffic? Or even ride on the shoulder lane? Or bicycle lane?

    Or is it not strictly legal but they don't enforce it? Or do they?

  2. Not sure of the law there but this past June I road the coast in California where lane splitting is legal. It is also an efficient way to help traffic congestion as well as a helluva lot of fun as you pass all the smucks in their cages. One person, one parking spot.
    It is a bit nerve wracking when you are loaded with gear and your panniers make your bike wider at first but you get used to it.
    Riders should be petitioning their governments everywhere to make it common practice.
  3. Not legal to filter, ride in thw shoulder or bike lanes. Yes they do police it. Whether they look the other way depends on the copper.
  4. sort of related, you can ride in bus lanes though
