8/29 - There was CMSP meeting at the Sacramento CHP. They previewed a 30 second video about sharing the road (with motorcycles). It is not yet released to the public, but will upload it to You Tube on their 'TheCHPChannel'. Other information shared..
• It is illegal to ride on the white line
• CHP will be starting public education about drivers' & bikers having to share the same lane. Berkeley researchers did interviews of cagers at gas stations and asked them about lane sharing.
• The lane splitting survey showed... 53% of cagers know that lane sharing is legal, 17% admitted to deliberately cutting off bikers and 5% preferred not to answer.
• Lane 'splitting' is the correct term. Lane 'sharing' is for side by side riding according to the CHP.
