The Dangers of Lane Splitting
Many people are aware of the dangers that motorcyclists face on the road. However, few are aware of the dangers that motorcyclists can pose to other drivers. Although most motorcyclists drive safely and legally, there are, unfortunately, some who engage in dangerous driving activities. One of the most dangerous things a motorcyclist can do is lane splitting, something that causes numerous accidents, injuries, and even deaths each year.

What Is It?
Lane splitting is an extremely dangerous activity that motorcyclists and bicyclists can commit, putting both their lives and the lives of other drivers in danger. When a motorist operating a two-wheel vehicle drives between traffic and shares the lane of another vehicle to do so, they are engaging in lane splitting. This is a very dangerous activity due to the proximity of the motorcyclist and car driver.
In fact, in every U.S. state except California, lane splitting is illegal. However, despite this effort to protect both motorcyclists and other vehicle drivers, many motorcycle drivers still continue to engage in this dangerous driving behavior.
If a motorcycle driver has recklessly endangered your life and left you coping with the consequences of an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
