its surprising how many people drive tiny cars and cant keep it between the lines as well.SUV LAND.
with people who don't know their cars' boundaries.
Oh trust me i see it every time i get on the bicycle to commute. The minivan passes me with plenty of space, the Ford f-150 as well, then the yukon passes me too, tons of space (and half of them even stay WITHIN the lane). Then i get a mini cooper pass RIGHT BY ME even though the furthest i usually will go into the lane is left of the manhole.its surprising how many people drive tiny cars and cant keep it between the lines as well.
the lanes in most of the GTA are huge and have ample space to split, my daily is a raptor and I don't have issues.
On a daily I see compact and small cars not knowing hot to take turns or even drive straight without crossing or touching lines.
Because cagers don't like you getting in front of them and...Lane splitting is legal in a number of European countries, like France. It makes sense, especially during rush hour. in bumper to bumper traffic, when vehicles on the highways are going 20-30 km/h.
Why isn't it legal here?
Interesting concept, I like it, it's totally illegal and you are the guy that is so! going to get nailed if a cop sees it, but I could make it work if it was ok, and my speed limit is 10 k higher then the trucks and cagesI started doing my own thing a few weeks ago, not really splitting of filtering. If I'm the first to a stop light and heading thru, I'll stop between both lanes. Drivers pull up beside me, a lot of them smile and give me the thumbs up. I can safely blast off and choose my track after clearing the intersection.
Exactly. Also makes the MC rider look like a good road user, letting them jump to the front. For me it eliminates the chance of some dummy rear ending me.. f%$ the blocking position, this is way safer.If you are already at the front and going away faster than the cages, no net benefit. Suppose it makes the cagers feel better about themselves being 6 feet closer to the intersection....
