As it is right now if a local cop sees you filtering up through stopped traffic, you're likely to get a Rodney King.
"Cali-style high-speed splitting" is often considered "reckless" by the authorities here in CA. I can't say I never do it, but I don't do it often.

OTOH there's nothing unsafe about filtering through a traffic jam where the cages are doing less than 20 and I'm doing 25-30. And it takes one vehicle out of the line-up so everybody gets there faster. The same is true of filtering at traffic lights. I'm not using space that a car could occupy, whereas I would be if NOT filtering.
