    Translation:

    In AZ it's not legal to split or filter.

    However, I'm going to keep doing it when it's called for and my give-a-shit-o-meter is not going to budge.

    i've done it a few times outside of california. There's a particular section of US 78 here leaving memphis towards Birmingham that has a couple of redlights spaced 1/2 mile apart and is very, very congested with tractor trailers.

    sometimes i've come up on a red light, with 5-7 semis in each of the two lanes. with the speed of the red lights, that means I'm not going to get through the next green light, AND i'm going to end up getting stuck at the next stop light as well. so, if everyone is at a standstill and there's room between the semis, i'll filter to the front.

    Did it for 12 years in Phoenix, no tickets (for that anyway). :lol3

    Disclosure: I don't do it much anymore because the traffic in Prescott ain't that serious.

    Last time I was in Phoenix I did it though. Felt great. :clap

    Fighting tickets is a legitimate act of civil disobedience and our civic duty.

    I posted these in the splitting thread, should have put them here. In Barcelona, it's enforced.

    Sign indicating that motos should advance to the filter zone..
