Not that I'm advocating outlawing lane splitting in CA, I'm not, I'm just saying the police thing isn't going to stop it, or even make a speedbump.
Except that the vehicle code here explicitly applies to LEO. If a LEO gets in an accident and has violated the vehicle code he will be found at fault. Doesn't matter if they are responding to a call or not.
