Standby for a mild rant. To my understanding, part of lane splitting at traffic lights is the assumption that you will accelerate away from the lights faster than the cars thereby not cutting them off at the lights. If you can't do this (eg. 50cc scooter with pillion lane splits in front of an XR8 or Monaro) then for the sake of all riders, don't lane split. This is the best way to get people pissed off at riders and getting lane splitting on the policing agenda. I see this time and time again in inner city Sydney where scooters are prevalent and it annoys me almost as much as the cagers that are being cut off. PS. I have nothing against scooters if you think that is my motivation.
