Do you mean the Highway Traffic Act, per chance?
I filter and lane split, respectfully, all the time in Toronto and the 401. When traffic is congested and stopped or at lights... I have not been brave enough to do it passing a cop... don't need the court hassle if I can avoid it. But the number of other motorcyclists who block or give disapproving gestures is ridiculous... I have spoken to TO police and they have said it's not illegal ... but it appears to be subjective and up to the particular cop at that particular time...
Surprise.... the MTO recommends not practicing it.... but they do not mention motorcycle deaths from rear end collisions? Or traffic congestion? I wil l argue in court safety trumps death!
Stuck on the 401 in construction years and years ago. Ambient temp was about 40C. I was getting woozy not moving and inch and getting hotter and hotter by the second.
I had loosened off my helmet and was holding it off my head in attempt to cool down.
A motor officer came up the shoulder, saw what I was doing, and then motioned me to follow him. I got a police escort, between traffic and up the shoulder to nearest off ramp.
Nowadays, I wouldn't hesitate to do the same move without the cop in the same circumstances. But to split just to split.. naw, not me.
