    I can still truthfully say I'd rather split than sit in traffic....

    Agree, but I'm in PA. Bikes do it here, but it's not allowed and if you're in an accident I'm sure you're f'd.

    USA - Oregon proposed a bill in 2015 but it didn't pass. It apllied to interstate only and only if traffic is 20 mph or less.

    Ever since then, many do it just the same taking the chance. The lanes here are so narrow in the inner city its a test to pick and choose where you fit. Thus, many have taken to riding the right shoulder through all the debris. I'm guessing that would be nice fine if caught? Its very high risk compared to splitting as people never check their mirrors for a look ahead on the shoulder...

    I didn't realize it was illegal everywhere else but Cali. I couldn't imagine not being able to split lanes in certain traffic out here although I try to avoid it as much as possible
