Background information here: http://www.southbayriders.com/forums/showthread.php?p=505249&posted=1#post505249 with references to the original posting on BARF.

Basically, there was an anti-lane splitting article in the Contra Costa Times and they've asked for a vote as to whether or not it should be allowed in California. You should read the original article, or at least the wording of the poll, then vote as you see fit (I wouldn't want to tell you how to vote ;D ).

They might find out that the motorcycle community has become organized for this, which would make an interesting followup article.

Edit:
I think the area motorcyclists have made their point. I still need to figure out where that article was in the Times, since I receive that paper.

One vote placed here. It would be rather annoying to lose lane-splitting after such a short time spent enjoying it. 8)
(Well that and it's bound to annoy the article writer if the over-whelming majority tells 'em to stuff it [cheeky])

Re: Your vote is needed, today!

As of this morning (when I discovered I get another vote on my home system >:D ) there were 529 votes with 51 of those against. I would love to see the author when she first sees those results.

My post showed total and against, not for and against. Probably a bad move on my part, since it later confused me as well.

760 Keep it legal
79 Make it illegal

Why are they even keeping this up? It's obvious lanesplitting will be kept legal. Besides the convenience, I thought it was necessary since some motorcycles are air cooled and need to be in motion for that - since there is no fan to cool off the engine like in a car.

Some hummer/suv gas vampire brat is just bitter after eating all the lanesplitters' dust ::)

Voted. [thumbsup] I can't believe I actually had to take time out of my day to defend this.

Stupid people really piss me off. ::)

Voted! It's a no brainer - way more likely to get rear ended than doored or swiped when splitting.
