As a frequent traveler to California, I have been surprised (startled really) by a motorcycle whizzing by me at high rates of speed between the lanes of traffic on the freeway. I was surprised to learn that this “lane splitting” is legal in the State of California. I remember thinking, how can something so dangerous be legal and what happens if there is a crash?
Should an accident occur as a result of lane splitting, one might assume the motorcycle driver is at default. That assumption would be wrong.
Personal injury lawyer Steven Sweat of The Law Offices of Steven M. Sweat talks candidly about this topic with PersonalInjury.com’s Editor in Chief Larry Bodine. Mr. Sweat shares eye-opening information every driver needs to be aware of, particularly if lane splitting is legal in your state.
