The guidelines are nothing more than how most of us split lanes anyway.

Show your support for lane sharing/splitting
There is a new e-petition you can sign.


Petition the California Office of Administrative Law, the California Highway Patrol and other state agencies to bring back lane-splitting guidelines

Cabrito, thanks for bringing this over. I've been following this on BARF. :thumb

The AMA is collecting signatures to petition the state to put the guidelines back.

You can sign it here:

They just need enough information to verify that you're a real person.

From the article:
"The Office of Administrative Law sided with Mandler, noting that CHP Commissioner J. A. Farrow certified that his department would not "issue, use, enforce, or attempt to enforce the public education information." The OAL determined that posting the guidelines on the website was "issuing" them."

So by this logic, the CHP needs to remove all safety information and videos that do not enforce specific laws from their website.

Why does this not surprise me...

"Kenneth Mandler, a longtime state employee who now conducts training sessions on how to get a state job..."

What a fucking tool.
