From BCCOM's Facebook page:
"Thanks everyone for the discussion below and for sharing our online poll with your friends. BCCOM was approached 4 years ago now to start really looking into the benefits and disadvantages of "Lane Filtering". Now we're not talking about "Lane Splitting" or "White Lining" which is done at a very high-speed in between fast or slow moving traffic. We would like to see Lane Filtering used as a safety precaution and nothing more.
BCCOM would like to see more structure and strict guidelines imposed surrounding lane filtering in B.C. The operator has to operate the motorcycle no more than 10 kilometers-an-hour faster than the rest of traffic is going. Traffic can’t be going over 30 kilometers -an-hour and it can’t be done in a school crossing zone, somewhere with a high volume of crossing pedestrians, or somewhere where the speed limit is less than 30 kilometers -an-hour. Motorcyclists must never ride in between vehicles that mirrors won’t be able to see them (semi-trucks, large RV’s).
Lane filtering is legal in over 26 countries world wide including; Sweden, Singapore, Ireland, United Kingdom and Brazil. Now many peoples concern is that the general public is not used to this and wont want to accept it. A very big public awareness campaign done through ICBC, implementing new rules and training into both motorcycle and car driving lessons would be a necessity. We would want "Lane Filtering" to be LEGAL, so that if and when there are accidents the car driver will be liable.
Our poll on the website right now reads 85% YES and 15% NO, out of 150 voters, please continue to share this poll."
