NSW Lane Splitting approved

Motorcycle filtering to be legalised in NSW ? Motorcycle news, reviews & riding tips - bikesales.com.au

For fully licensed riders only.

Effective 1 July 2014

I'm hoping this starts a chain reaction for everywhere else in Australia.

Once thing though, this said NSW is the first state or territory to allow lane splitting. I heard Melbourne allows you to do it as well. Any ideas?

Lane splitting is still illegal.

Filtering is legal.

Rules for motorcyclists -

Lane filtering means motorcyclists can only move between stationary vehicles at intersections.

Specific conditions will include taking extra care when filtering near buses, no filtering on the left in the kerbside left lane or dedicated turning lanes, and riders must stop at the intersection stop-line.

Lane filtering has to stay within a lane, it is not overtaking.

Lane splitting will not be allowed – this involves motorcyclists weaving through moving traffic instead of stationary traffic.

Move to California. Lane splitting is 100 percent legal.
Kozaru and Mattel like this.

Oh, the stuff I say.

It was so nice to lane split in the UK! The drivers there obey the law much better than in CA.

We have a long way to go here in the us.
