Been lane splitting/filtering here in South Florida for over 15 years and have never come close to touching another vehicle. The reason that Europe and CA continue to be mentioned is that they are good examples of how (when legalized) car drivers can and will adapt to filtering and splitting. The facts are that it is safer for motorcyclists and reduces road congestion for cars. Once legalized I am positive that more road users will make a switch to 2 wheeled commuting. As for the cage drivers (and others) that think it is "unfair" , fuck em'. They are people that simply aren't worth worrying about and frankly are a hindrance to easing road issues and a burden to society as a whole. Besides, you can't fix stupid.
