No. A vehicle suddenly stopped just before entering the freeway which has no shoulders with two other cars struggling to avoid hitting eachother.

I go into decision making mode and filtering got the green light and stopping got a big fat don't do that.

Somebody was just killed on a motorbike for that I believe.

Thanks bevo. Now I need to make that video private again.

You lane split / rode next to a car in the same lane. You knew you could be cited for such actions. Be a man and pay the fine for doing the crime. Don't be a bia and try to get out on a technicality. Regardless of what's written vs entered on the docket, you know what you did and why you were written up. Personal accountability.

No they got killed stopping in the narrow section of an on-ramp.
...what you're doing is trying to find justification for your action to dodge a ticket you'd been told is illegal.

What I did is not illegal.
Clearly stated in the txdot FAQ.

I would have fought regardless of a technical error, but if I don't need to then why bother?
the to previously mentioned infractions do not describe the manner in which I chose and will continue to choose how to ride.

The facts are simply that filtering and splitting provide safely benefits while reducing congestion. Nothing criminal about that.

Ulric, stopping on the narrow section of the on ramp is exactly what I avoided doing here.

Another example would be the cop writing "speeding" on the ticket. That's perfectly fine. You can't get out of a speeding ticket because it only says "speeding."

What you did is illegal. You did not maintain a single lane of traffic. You were not BEHIND the car. You were next to it. You were now making a single lane into a double lane, even though there was not an official 2nd lane.

Lane splitting is illegal. Riding in the same lane next to a car is illegal. Riding the lines between two lanes (while not going from one lane to the next) is illegal. Riding the line to pass between cars is illegal. You can try to your way out of it, and you may succeed since society has become pussified, but what you did was illegal and now you're being a and complaining about having to pay the fine.

I'm glad I don't work with you... you're likely the kind of person to blame others or technicalities on why you don't get your work done on time / properly.

I have openly welcomed the opportunity before and the cop didn't show.

It's not about pussing out, it's whether or not I need to hire an attorney. I tend to hoard my money where I can.

If you actually read the statute, you would realize that it is irrelevant to the subject at matter. I can make a guess that you don't know Jack about law. It specifically forbids leaving the lane and does not mention anything about sharing the lane. The single lane of traffic is maintained and after the officer invited me to trial I have reason to believe he filed a different charge because he actually did a bit of research over at hpd.

Best of luck to you. Sounds like you are going to be spending some time up at the courthouse. Did you request trial by judge or jury?

"I have openly welcomed the opportunity before and the cop didn't show"

If he didn't show wasn't it dismissed? Or did you have multiple citations?

A citation is just a summons for you to come to Court. It is possible for a citation to not have any offense on it at all. That is why your first appearance is called an arraignment, when you are formally told of the charge(s) against you.

Now the reality is that police officers typically do no generate entire offense reports for a mere traffic citation. So the citation will contain relevant information necessary to bring a charge and refresh the officer's memory. That is the purpose for all of the info on it.
