Good job Hooligan! When I split lanes in Chicago, they spit, opened their doors, pulled closer, etc. In the spirit of "fuck 'em all" I rode in the E-lane. Never any cops on the freeways during rush hour anyhow...they are told to stay away and out of that mess.
I do appreciate the hard work to make it legal. I'll help back you up by simply just splitting lanes in support!
