    In particular:
    WA Road Traffic Code 2000

    Ever wanted to know if we can ride in bus lanes in WA, or if lanesplitting is legal? Check out the Road Traffic Code and Act, very useful stuff

          I was just giving examples of the type of stuff you could find there if so inclined.

          But if a summary is what you want...

          You can't ride in bus lanes, but you can in Transit lanes (not that there are any in Perth that I know of).

          Lanesplitting is not mentioned in any way, shape or form. The only mention of overtaking on the left is in regards to moving vehicles. So lanesplitting should be safe as long as you don't touch the solid white line.

                Melkor and I 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 your 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.

                  Isn't this unless the vehicle is turning ?

                          Nah, it wasn't meant to be a lanesplitting thread, just a 'here is a copy of the WA road rules so you can check out stuff' thread.

                            it all depends on the cop i think.
                            example= creeping through a double lane of traffic on the kenwick link going to cannington, its a left hand turn at the lights, all cars were stopped until i was three cars from the front, so i open the throtle and fly through to the front cars and guess whos at the front on my right, yep unmarked car with two uniformed in side, the noise of pipes vibrating there doors off, i thought i was gone but no they didnt even give me second look, so it must be legal
