  • lane splitting-WHATS THE GO!

    After hours of trolling and 'Advanced' searches im left wondering the rules on lane splitting. I know there is no regulation against it, but i cant seem to find any info if it is legal to pass on the left side of a vehicle within its lane (multilane).

    I propose the following diagram...are A and B both legal?

    Also if an accident does occur at the red circle (below) because some cager does not indicate and just goes for the cross as he sees a free spot in the quicker lane, whos to blame??

                Who's to blame? Hmm. You won't give a toss while you're bleeding internally or moving on to the great racetrack in the sky..

                      B is legal if traffic is stopped or turning right. A is legal if executed in a "safe" manner, getting yourself hit can be considered proof that it wasn't safe. You must remain entirely in your chosen lane where there is an unbroken line this includes feet when stopped.
                      Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                      when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                        well i do give a toss cos i had an off on friday situation B on the fwy, when some cager decided to cross to a free spot as i was splitting through cars, everyone was moving, just slow. i braked to not hit this F#(*& but still managed to hit his rear and fly over the top and hit another car. So wondering my options...

                          And if traffic is moving?

                            The exhaust manufacturer for making an exhaust that is too quiet to use while splitting.

                              Did you click on the links?

                              Is Lane Splitting Legal?

                              Melkor and Deej have covered this many times.

                              Lane splitting is both legal and illegal.

                              If vehicles are stationary than you can overtake on any side.

                              If vehicles are moving than you can only overtake on the right hand side of a vehicle in your lane.

                              If you overtake in the left then it becomes an illegal overtaking manouvere.

                              You must also indicate whenever changing lanes and give 'sufficient' signal to notify the other road users of your intention.

                              In no circumstances can you cross the continuous white line on a road. Used to be just at intersections but it is now wherever it is painted ie freeway exits, intersections, sides of the road and painted islands.

                              You cannot overtake on double continous lines but you can turn right and do uturns.

                              If you're gonna lane split, use common sense, travel a a safe speed and don't cause any interference to other traffic because if you do then the whole process becomes an illegal action.

                              Regards
