Good to hear. Also no surprise that police is opposed to it. It's ridiculous how they think. Yes it will cause some issues at 1st if it passes, and cagers will need to accept that it is the law, but after acclimation process it will be 2nd nature to everyone. I dont see anyone in other countries or states where this is legal complain.
About time I say. Lets just hope riders don't take advantage of it and pull douche-bag high speed passes on the shoulder, or rip at speeds in excess of 40km/hr on the shoulder
DON'T STUFF THE CAGERS!
will die in the house like last one if it even makes it there.
anything perceived as a convenience is doomed.
should be something like: may proceed on hard shoulder at 10mph greater than traffic speed to a max of 20 mph to the next exit if it is the only reasonable way to avoid a mechanical breakdown and/or medical emergency (eg heat exhaustion).
I'd be surprised if proper interpretation of the existing laws didn't already allow similar.
I think the US cops could be trusted with the above.
only a moron would sit there and break down or get heat stroke in a traffic jam.
anecdotal non-evidence that the 'merican cops could be trusted to interpret reasonable:
I have rolled past a statey with 2 other bikes in a 3 mile traffic jam (fucking Evergreen state fair) doing 20mph on a 30 degree C day and we didn't even get a light flash.
That would be nice, a good compromise from (and hopefully a step towards) lane splitting.
But let's call a spade a spade... highway traffic moving at less than 25mph isn't particularly dangerous. We want to ride the shoulder because bikes get hot and we don't want to sit there any more than anyone else does.
Shoulders are so dirty and full of debris.
Carry a tire repair kit.
But if that is the only option, well, I'll take it.

I think California's lane splitting laws would work way better, but it's better than nothing...
They should do similar to Cali DMV, remove all text that restricts lane sharing for two-wheeler. And in handbook mention that the motorcycles can share lane and can go slightly faster than traffic speed.
No x, y, delta,.. magic speeds should be mentioned (amateurish). That was the flaw in what cali patrol proposed. DMV rightly rejected it, also that's DMV's domain.
Odd that neighboring states are not able to copy good practices from others.
Service providers should be encouraged to use lane-splitting

mostly upright riding and not much sport skills involved for a to b.
