good reading thanks.
we need to flood our polititions to get this back in their minds.
also maybe send some infor to the chronicle and get them lazy bastards to print some benefits to lane-sharing or filtering.
I know in Germany 20 years ago, at a light all the bikes. motorcycle, scooters and bicycles all got up to the front of the line

Yeah, I guess you said the bike was going slow. Maybe it's not that huge of a deal, but the dude's still an for doing that and he shouldn't be surprised when someone ****s his truck up if he keeps on doing that.

If I am close to the front, I will usually split to go to the front. If I get a ticket for doing so then that is on me. But nobody should ever take to the law into their own hands as it is not their business.

One day, I was coming into houston on I-10 where HW6 crosses and there was major construction (around noon). Traffic was slowed and redirected on to the feeder road for about 2-3 miles (would have taken me an hour to get thru). There it is in the middle of summer and I am sweating in full gear feeling like I am going to pass out. I try to always play by the rules so I waited and then saw some other cyclist doing heaving splitting. I said to meself, , a cop can only go after one of us, so I followed and took my chances. Halfway through some (mexican guy) in a truck decided to block me. He got out of the vehicle and proceeded at me in a threatening way and said "You can wait like everyone else". Got back in and kept getting in my way. He just didnt realize how close he came to getting shot that day. I dont say this lightly because even though I own and carry, I actually hate weapons (that dumbasses force me to carry). Ultimately, he didnt have the manuverability and I was able to avoid a situation and continue on my way but there are some stupid people out there. This dumbass was actually trying to use the vehicle as a weapon! I say, if it doesnt affect you, just leave other people alone and mind your own business.

That is the thing i hear alot from ignorant people.
If they would just think, they would realize that those several bikes in between the lanes are now NOT taking up spaces between the cages hence shortening the amount of time they may be stuck in traffic.
My co-worker said about the same thing 2 nights ago when i mentioned about this thread, I then told him about how it would shorten the time THEY would be in the traffic jam. He said he never thought of it that way. People now only think about how u are going to the front of the line instead they should be thanking you for quickening their drive time.

"lane splitting is still a gray issue here in TX." - no, it's an illegal issue here in Texas.

So, if the guy on the motorcycle is going between vehicle to get to the front, what does he do when he gets there? Is he now stuck in between cars at the light and the vehicles have to wait while they figure out which lane he is going to use when he takes off?

I don't condone opening doors on anyone but in Houston traffic, lane splitting is not accepted or expected by other drivers.

I was on my way home from Austin one time and got stuck in a huge traffic jam, so I started splitting lanes (slow speed). This guy moves his car over to block me, so I just drove behind his car and then came back around infront of him, turned around shot him the and kept on rolling I'll bet he was . I dont see why it bothers people so much, I could care less if I'm in traffic and a bike splits to pass me...it's not affecting me.

Can't speak for anyone else, but when I split to the front, I already know what lane and where I am going. I am already on the move before the people in the cars at front realize the light has changed. So other than being a grumpy , nobody should have a problem with it. When I drive a car, I dont care what people do as long as they do so safely and respectfully.
