On my trip across the US, the only place I felt even tempted to lane split was on the California freeways. Everywhere else, traffic either moved quick or people didn't block the passing lane.
That said....the CA freeways were scary and riding the car pool lane or lane splitting was probably the only thing that kept me alive. Afternoon traffic on a 90 degree day was just about suicide. After 30 minutes of combating shitty asian lady drivers, I said fuck the consequences and just split till i found a lane with a huge gap and got the hell out of there. At the time I didn't know you could lane split and CHP was everywhere.
Didn't find out till I was in Colorado lane splitting was legal
