  • Lane Filtering in NSW legal

    So one of the States has wised up and has finally brought this in: New laws make NSW first to give motorcyclists approval to move past stalled, slow cars | News.com.au

    Hopefully a sign of things to come for us in WA?

    It is already legal in WA, and has always been that way...

      I am aware filtering was allowed at traffic lights but was not aware you can do it legally while traffic was moving

        It's legal, it's just hard to do it legally...

          It does read that NSW will make it much 'easier' to filter though.

            My understanding was that in WA traffic needed to be completely stationary to pass int he same lane and that while it wasnt stated as being illegal, it wasnt stated as being legal either.

            They do also mention in that article that it applies to slow moving cars, which in WA I thought was a no no.

            Happy to hear its ok if it is then.

              The only benefit the NSW riders get ofer us from this is that their new law states you can filter on a lane line.

                are these HID lights?

                also...

                the good part is
                This includes motorcycles travelling within a lane, on the lane line or into the adjacent lane when filtering.
                I don't think that part is legal here???

                  Two of them also have aftermarket exhausts.. It's probably a stock photo rather than one supplied by NSWPOL

                      It sounds like that makes the indicating while lane splitting rule redundant which seems to be a waste of time anyway.

                          Refreshing to see some common sense coming through from the politicians and safety boards. Maybe queensland should take notice??

                            Are you trying to get them to ban common sense?

                              What indicating rule? You only need to indicate if you're changing lanes.
