Indiana Lane Splitting petition

Found this on Reddit this evening. If one state gets it, maybe more will follow.

Yeah, motorcycles are so special that they shouldn't have to wait in traffic like everyone else.....

They don't in California. It is one of the nice things about this state that makes riding through cities so much more fun and easier. Even the basic concept of filtering at lights makes certain cities easier to deal with. I wish those in Indiana luck. They will need it.

Yes, yes they are.

There are childishly obvious reasons to motorcycles not waiting in traffic, which I can elaborate on if you need me to.
What reason(s?) can you name that motorcyclists should wait, other than "well, all the car drivers do"?

Can you not see the benefits to everyone stuck in traffic, if it encourages more people to ride? A lot of people commute by Motorcycle in CA because they can lane-split and move thru traffic better, as I suspect a lot of people in Europe, Asia, etc... do the same.

Best of luck to you Indiana!

Presently, lane splitting is legal in California and the rest of the world. There's something to that.

Motorcycles are different. We riders must manage a different reality.

they're small and fit so don't have to wait except on the law

and that makes them a bit special as modes of viable, efficient transportation. if others resent it and think we're being entitled they can get and ride a bike. otherwise drivers can mind their own business

i have even read some of the more butt-hurt say "well a smart car can fit between cars sometimes. can they split lanes, too?"

well, idk. its a ridiculous argument but i suppose they can try. although much more dangerous to the car as one tiny scratch can send an owner into a life consuming drama, as we all have witnessed

i love when we split next to cars and they honk or yell like we almost hit them. almost never happens where i live though because our drivers are used to it, somewhat

no, we did not almost hit you. kindly

indiana, don't be shy. do it!

The eu "maids" study showed that it was six times safer than waiting in line for the motorcycle.

lane splitting is a stupid idea and unfortunately here in Europe we have full such idiotic rules (not saying there no in States). It's highly dangerous,
we have many accidents because of that, when I ride I never do it.
