What Are the Motorcycle Lane Splitting Laws in California?

Unlike many other states, California does not prohibit motorcycle riders from lane splitting. In fact, official publications from the California Highway Patrol state, "Lane splitting in a safe and prudent manner is not illegal in the state of California." That being said, all motorcyclists are highly advised to split lanes only when traffic is going at speeds of less than 30 mph, and to never go faster than 10 mph than surrounding traffic when doing so. Also, the same rules of the road with respect to lane delineation apply to motorcyclists as they do to other motor vehicle operators.

How Can I Prove that the Other Driver Was Liable in a Lane Splitting Accident?

Unfortunately, fault can be attributed to the motorcyclist in lane splitting accident cases because the maneuver is considered to be inherently dangerous. However, if the motorcycle rider can show that the other driver (presumably of a car or truck) caused the accident, the rider may seek full compensation for all damages that resulted from the crash.

Proving the following factors can help you win your claim:

  • You were riding lawfully and carefully – not speeding or weaving in and out of lanes.
  • You are an experienced rider who has completed a motorcycle riding or safety course.
  • The other driver acted in a negligent manner – for instance, abruptly changing lanes without using the turn signal, or drifting from one lane into another.

An attorney can help you support your side of the story by analyzing police and medical reports, gathering witness statements, collecting video footage or photos (if applicable), and using expert testimony by accident reconstructionists and other relevant professionals.
