Lane splitting vs. lane filtering. What is the difference and why is it important? The state of Utah recently legalized lane filtering, and it may begin to spread to the rest of the country.
Lane splitting is where motorcyclists go between two lanes of traffic going in the same direction. Lane filtering is when motorcyclists use the outside edge of the furthest right or left lane. They are both ways that motorcyclists can maneuver around cars on the road.
Lane filtering is much safer than lane splitting because the motorcyclist is not in between two lanes where they could easily be hit.
Lane splitting may be more convenient but it, in my experience, it is not worth the risk. Lane filtering is much safer, and it is easier to get a bill legalizing lane filtering passed than one legalizing lane splitting.

We called Mr Spaulding’s office when my husband was involved in a hit and run on his motorcycle. They took over and helped us out greatly. The case was resolved within a couple of months. I would definitely recommend that you give them a call if you are involved in an accident. Excellent friendly staff all around.
I am glad to have Ted Spaulding and his team working on my complicated car accident case. They are handling my personal property and injury claims. I do wish communication and updates were more frequent, but I have faith my case is being taken care of.
