On Monday, August 1, 2016, California bill AB 51, the lane splitting bill, passed the full California State Senate in a 38-0 vote. AB 51 recently passed the Senate Transportation Committee in an 11-0 vote. The bill now returns to the California State Assembly for approval.
All California motorcyclists who are interested in seeing AB 51 passed should contact their state senator and ask them to support the bill. You can find out who your representative is here.
