HA!

Not only BMW cagers but y'all never have encountered both Prius and Tesla drivers yet.

They will make your head spin.

I find that to be the opposite in LA. They're the most courteous by a country mile. Easily 8 out of 10 of them give me way. In LA what seems like 1 out of every 10 cars is a uber or lift & they're the worst regardless of what car they are driving.

Living in LA 100% agree with what you said, I'll just add Tesla, Prius and Jeep Wrangler to the Uber/Lift list!

That could be a good reason for the reduction. Here is NorCal Uber and Left are present but cagers love their cars.

On a side note Uber/Lyft has a bigger stake at hand thus may contribute to their courteous actions.

In general, most drivers are courteous. In fact, with high probability you can tell who rides or know some very close that ride that are courteous.

Its those 8% that cause dangerous situations.

Most of you are missing the irony. OP drives and rides a BMW.
I was wondering if anyone would catch this. Truth be told the primary reason for me posting this lol. I initially didn't think he even signaled, I don't remember ever seeing it. It is dim from the angle for sure. So that makes it better, but he obviously wasn't paying attention.

No argument on that data BUT neglecting the driver's emotion (which is one of the causes) to a Legal activity such as lane-splitting (AB51) driver's are still pissed off that motorcyclist can execute such maneuvers that only exist in PRK.

The Motorcycle Lane-Split Divide


Update: Texas has SB-288

Spectrum: Partisan Bill (Democrat 1-0)
Status: Introduced on December 9 2016 - 25% progression
Action: 2017-01-30 - Referred to Transportation
Pending: Senate Transportation Committee
AB51 got kinda **** on and moaned about by some Libtard and now it's been watered down to this:

Lane splitting general guidelines

"Lane splitting general guidelines" information is no longer available.

A petitioner complained to the Office of Administrative Law that there was no formal rulemaking process for the guidelines, and raised other objections. The CHP discussed the issue with the Office of Administrative Law and chose not to issue, use or enforce guidelines and thus removed them from the website.

The underlying purpose of the guidelines was to provide common-sense traffic safety information.

California law does not allow or prohibit motorcycles from passing other vehicles proceeding in the same direction within the same lane, a practice often called "lane splitting," "lane sharing" or "filtering."

Creating a safer highway environment is the shared responsibility of drivers and motorcyclists alike. This is achieved by staying alert and using common sense and courtesy while on the road. It is also important for motorcyclists to minimize their risks by riding responsibly, always wearing a helmet and other protective gear and to never ride under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicants. Here are other important safety reminders:

Watch your speed—a motorcycle collision is highly likely to cause injury or death
Assume people in cars do not see you.
Avoid blind spots in other vehicles, particularly large trucks
The California Highway Patrol also strongly encourages all motorcycle riders to sign up for the California Motorcyclist Safety Program, which is administered by the CHP as California's official motorcycle safety and training program. The Program offers courses for new and experiences riders. For more information visit http://www.chp.ca.gov/programs/motorcycle.html.

One thing I've learned from our LEOs: It's either an incident or a collision. NEVER an "accident". How true. That's the way we need to think, how can this be avoided in the future.

For the Tesla drivers, a little more throttle and a couple of lane changes keeps them at bay. He was just pissed because you killed him off the light. And he was on the phone to Elon to complain.
