Meh, you know what I meant. This was basically my way of "justifying" filtering by showing studies done on the subject and thereby hopefully educating some people. Do I personally do it? In four years of riding I have maybe five times. I just do not have a need to where I live. Would I do it more if I lived in a major city and commuted by bike? Probably. But I know what could happen, both by LEOs and vigilantes and I think I am ok with what the likely outcomes are (nothing would happen).
To answer the OP's question:
Is it OK to do it? Under the right circumstances sure, you won't get hurt.
Is it legal to do it? In Texas, no.
