Arizona House Bill 2475 motorcyclists to split lanes

Ex-LA officer touts motorcycle bill

As an ex-Los Angeles police officer, I support House Bill 2475, which would allow Arizona motorcyclists to split lanes. It is allowed in California and has proven to be safe.

I never once investigated an accident where a motorcyclist had an accident due to passing other vehicles in the same lane when the freeways were slow or stopped. However, it did result in more and more people riding motorcycles, cutting down on traffic congestion.

Even the head of the California Highway Patrol agrees that this California law should remain in effect. He agrees it cuts traffic congestion and has not resulted in any extra risk to motorcyclists or other vehicles. – Ted Storck,Surprise

    I think it would be great to legalize this, however, the animosity from the cager crowd makes me hesitant. Looking at any of the news articles about it ,that allow user comments, one will see all kinds of ignorant comments and outright threats towards bikers. There are so many inept, feeble, and outright retarded cagers out there, they can’t understand how this actually helps in the long run.
