I understand that some rider thinks that lane splitting is dangerous. I agree, especially there are some who lane split at high speed. Yet I believe that lane splitting is the reason why some of us ride bike for our daily commute.
Recently, I was shouted at by a driver for lane splitting. I was apologetic at that time thinking that my bike had touched his car, stop and said sorry and ask where is the damage thinking that I had to pay for it or claim insurance. In the end, he just keep shouting about the danger and did not tell me where I damage his car (which I think I did not). I summarized that its just his bad day in the jam and he just don't like the way we are able to ride pass just like that.
Let's do a day call "Say No to Lane Split" where we will stick to a single lane, taking up the space of a car. Let's create a jam so serious that the drivers will finally understand the advantage and the benefits.
The purpose is to let all the road users know the advantage, in which they will be able to accommodate better to rider lane splitting by providing enough space for bike to move in between. They will also understand in order for bike to lane split safely, they need to signal and check blind-spot before changing lane.
We are being called a**h***, organ donor, rushing to die. But will the world be a better place if we stop lane splitting? Just a thought.
