Lane-Splitting by Erin
A report that came out on this a while back stated that California had fewer deaths per registered bike than any other state in the union. I believe we have more fatalities when you look at just the numbers, but when you look at the fact that we have so many more riders our average is far lower. The fact that we don’t get ploughed into from behind quite so often may have something to do with that. I for one was never so happy to cross a border as, after 3500 plus miles in other states, when I crossed back from Oregon into the GREAT LANE SPLITTING REPUBLIC of California.
