You Won't Believe the Truth About Motorcycle Lane Sp...

Lane splitting or better said lane sharing is crazy right? Not so fast. Watch the video, filmed during actual lane splitting in California with Nutnfancy, as we discuss the scientific and now proven facts of the practice. Amazingly it is safer for a motorcyclist when in heavy traffic. Like all "dangerous things" it is done safely by millions of people everyday, reducing pollution, traffic delays, drive times, and congestion. Discussed in the video is the amazing parallel between gun ownership/use and lane sharing. If you are against lane sharing, for the fear of abuse [seen or imagined] by the “fools” of society, then you should be probably against gun ownership as well to maintain integrity. Watch my 2009 video “Dangerous Things” for this foundational philosophy in TNP. This is consistent with that. Statisically proven in 2013, lane sharing reduces injuries and fatalities of motorcyclists when done responsibly. It should be passed in all 50 states./////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 11 out of 10

From American Motorcycle Assoc: "Perhaps one of the most dangerous situations for any motorcyclist is being caught in congested traffic, where stop-and-go vehicles, distracted and inattentive vehicle operators, and environmental conditions increase the risk of physical contact with another vehicle or hazard.

Reducing a motorcyclist's exposure to vehicles that are frequently accelerating and decelerating on congested roadways can be one way to reduce front- and rear-end collisions for those most vulnerable in traffic. A 2014 study conducted in California supports this assertion by demonstrating that motorcyclists engaging in responsible lane splitting were less likely to be rear ended, suffer a head injury or be involved in a fatal crash.

Other potential benefits include an increase in conspicuity because the motorcyclist is moving relative to other traffic; a reduction in motorcyclist fatigue from constant shifting and braking in stop-and-go traffic; a lessening of the risk for engine damage for air-cooled engines; a reduction in motorcyclists' exposure to ambient heat in the summer and car exhaust year-round due to fewer hours spent in traffic.
