What is lane splitting?

Driving around motorcycles can be a different experience for California drivers. Motorcycles are narrow and smaller than cars, which makes them harder to see, and motorcyclists operate differently than motorists do. One driving phenomenon that is unique is lane splitting, which is only legal in the state of California. It is important that both motorcycle and vehicle operators understand what it is and how to deal with it to enhance safety on the road.

What are the helmet laws in California?

When riding on a motorcycle, you are very vulnerable. Other vehicles on California roadways are much larger and pose a serious risk to you. In the event of an accident, the only protection you have is the safety gear you have on. While you have the option to wear certain types of safety gear, there is one thing the law mandates you to wear. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, every person on a motorcycle must wear a helmet.
