It’s time people start moving with the times.
There used to be a time when lane-splitting was considered a really stupid thing that negligent bikers did.
However, studies have shown that lane splitting is actually safer for motorcyclists as well as better for the flow of traffic.
Consequently, the state of California made it legal for motorcyclists to split lanes. While California is the only state where lane-splitting is currently legal in the United States, quite a few states have legislation regarding the same pending at varying stages.
Nevertheless, it’s a right of every motorcyclist in California to split lanes. But, some idiot drivers just don’t get it. In this incident caught on the rider’s helmetcam, we have one such driver.
The rider had split lanes and taken a lead on quite a few cars. He was stopped at a red light when this beige sedan came from behind. The driver in the car started arguing with the biker showing his discontent about the biker exercising his right and splitting lanes!
The driver then threw a bunch of stuff on the biker while sitting in the car. And as per California Vehicle Code 23110, such is a felony. The driver then tries to make the rider crash by unnecessarily brake-checking the rider and swerving besides him. What do you think about idiot drivers like these?
