San Francisco is a bicycle town. Every year the number of commuters who take to the streets on pedal-powered two-wheeled transportation grows by 2% with nearly 62,000 people counting on bikes as their primary transportation. It’s good for the riders, good for the environment, and good for the traffic flow. But San Francisco isn’t exactly an easy city for bicycle commuters.
A recently proposed bill that would make changes to California’s Penal Code and allow motorcycle lane splitting on highways only under certain circumstances has put this highly controversial practice in the spotlight. People from both sides of the argument (including this San Francisco motorcycle accident attorney) are vigorously voicing their opinions even as the bill has been temporarily shelved.
Assembly Bill 51 (AB 51) was introduced to the Assembly with the intention of specifically regulating motorcycle lane splitting. Currently the practice is not specifically banned or regulated and is technically legal.
