Texas Lane splitting. Get it passed!

A bill has one again been introduced to the Texas legislature to allow motorcycle lane splitting:

http://www.legis.state.tx.us/BillLoo...81R&Bill=SB506

Now would be the time to contact your state senators and representatives and ask them to support this bill. You can find your state reps and senator contact info by entering your address here find your rep

http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/Se...embers.htm#FYI

Quote:
(e) The operator of a motorcycle may operate the motorcycle
for a safe distance between lanes of traffic moving in the same
direction during periods of traffic congestion if:
(1) notwithstanding Section 661.003(c), the operator
and any passenger wear protective headgear that meets the safety
standards adopted by the department; and
(2) the operator operates the motorcycle:
(A) at a speed not more than five miles per hour
greater than the speed of the other traffic;
(B) in traffic that is moving at a speed of 20
miles per hour or less;
and
(C) in a location other than a school crossing
zone or a location where the posted speed limit is 20 miles per hour
or less.
SECTION 2. This Act takes effect September 1, 2009.

Its only common sense until the stunt guys abuse it.. Spent some time In LA and saw this at work, and its seems ok, but you better be ready for Texas drivers who cant drive for and think the road belongs to them.(haters, and road ragers with trucks) after all we are a RED state.

I thought it had died. My state rep wouldn't do anything, but I bumped the old post with form letters and contact info on reaching the state rep. I'm actually a bit pumped to see it was actually submitted. I'll contact my rep about it!
