If you ride a motorcycle, this could be important to you. The Highway Patrol, along with the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Office of Traffic Safety, have created a first-ever set of written guidelines on motorcycle lane-splitting. This is the maneuver that allows riders to legally pass vehicles in adjacent lanes by driving between them.
The guidelines allow motorcyclists to ride between two vehicles only if there is room, but at speeds no more than 10 mph faster than the vehicles they are passing. In addition, it is stated that the motorcyclist should not attempt the move at full freeway speeds or in any traffic going faster than 30 mph.
These guidelines come about at a time where more and more motorcycles are on the road - resulting in more and more accidents.
A motorcycle accident can have devastating person, physical and financial effects on the victim. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident and are injured, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who understands the legal components of your case, as well as how your personal life is affected by your accident and injuries.
